Renard Artist Model 220 Bassoon

A solid performer since its introduction in 1972, the Renard Artist 220 is a popular choice that features consistent range, stability and a warm, even tone. It is acoustically patterned after the Fox Model II. The 220 is a great economical choice for students, hobbyists and schools.

The 220 starts with a stunning Black Maple long-bore body- selected for its tone and durability and aged in Fox facilities. The body includes lining in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint and finished with a body lock and French bell (metal ring). The nickel silver-plated German key system includes high D and high E keys, ring key for wing joint third finger hole, rollers on F, Ab, Eb and Db; right thumb Bb and F# in combination with a crowned E key and Bb guard. Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing and boot joints prevent water from entering the tone holes. All spring posts are locked with screws. Each instrument is indevidually hand tuned to A=440 for maximum resonance and projection.
