(Long Bore)

Mechanically identical to the Renard model 240 bassoon. The tonal warmth and scale of the long bore gives a good choice between the 240 and the 220. The secure performance and superior intonation of the long bore design will provide excellent performance for advancing school bassoonists.

Introduced in 1972, the Renard 220 (long bore) can be identified by a very warm round tone, evenly balanced with excellent intonation throughout the entire range. It is the most secure design and its tone quality fits well into both chamber music and orchestral ensembles.
Like all of our long bore designs, it features an intonation guarantee that makes it very popular with students and schools.
