Originally introduced in 1965, the Renard Model 51 bassoon's long bore design can be identified by its very warm "round" tone, with even balance and excellent intonation throughout the entire range. Like the Model 41, this instrument has a durable body and secure acoustical design. In addition, this model features a compact key mechanism that makes it a popular choice for middle school music programs, those starting on bassoon at a young age, and beginning players with smaller hands.

Polypropylene, molded with critical dimensions machine finished. Body lock.

Nickel silver keys with nickel plating. Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All posts set in epoxy and spring posts are locked with screws.

No high D octave key. Plateau key covers the D hole to reduce finger stretch.

No C(sharp) trill key. No thumb G(sharp). No Bb trill key. Keys have been moved closer together to eliminate wide stretches. Rollers on F and A(flat) keys.

E(flat) and D(flat) located closer to other keys for shorter reach. Rollers on E(flat) and D(flat) keys.

Individually hand tuned to A-440 pitch with maximum resonance and projection.

Numbers 1 and 2, C Bore.

Fine plush-lined case, 2 reeds, seat strap, 2 drop swabs.

Repair/Warranty Policy
Within one year, the instrument may be returned to the factory for fine tuning, acoustical adjustment, and mechanical servicing, with costs limited to freight and parts.
