    Ooh a Schreiber! I have a friend that would be very envious of the fact that you have one of those!

    Looks really pretty! How does it play? and yeah if that's a Christmas present, wow.

    Default Cool.

    I understand. How did you decide on the bassoon? It's a very unique instrument (as is every instrument for that matter).

    well, ive wanted to play bassoon and french horn for a long while. when i started playing in the school band, the diretor would allow me french horn, and we didnt have a bassoon, so after a few instrumental changes i ended up on tuba, where i still am. but, my current band directors going to let me play bassoon for concert season. so, here i am. tubas getting quite boring.

    LOL

    I'd imagine. I play Bb/F Horn and it's quite the contrary!

    I wish you the best of luck!

    I have a beautiful CD of music for Harp and French Bassoon from composers such as Dauprat, Boieldieu, Nadermab, Labarre, Debussy and Saint-Saens
    With Luc Loubry on Basson.

    The French Bassoon [Buffet] has a very attractive and unique sound but I would guess that it is harder to play [I am not a Bassoonist] .

    i dont think its neccesarrily harder to play, it just has a different key system.

    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?
