    Default Bassoon for folk music

    I have heard people playing accordion, oboe and basson to make some very sweet folk music (kind of pirate music stuff) stuff and when I listened to this I completely fell in love with the music and since I play the accordion I also want to buy a bassoon because I love the smooth and mellow sound of it.
    I checked ebay but I only found some of them and all of them are in the US and won't ship to Sweden where I live. How am I supposed to get a bassoon?
    That's why I registered myself on this forum - maybe you know places where to buy instruments like this in Europe?
    I don't want to pay an extremely big ammount of money, but I'm ready to give $500 for a relatively good one. It doesn't matter if it's in new or used condition.
    Any suggestions?

    youre not going to find a good one for $500. youre not even going to find a bad one for $500. i paid $1800 for my used intermediate model schreiber, which is a great price for that particular instrument actually. cheapest ive really seen is $1500 for a used plastic linton 5k, and $1600 for a used wooden linton 5k. expect to pay over $1000 dollars... bassoons arent cheap. best place to look for one is music shops that sell band instruments and orchaestras that sell their old instruments when they buy new ones.

    Where can you find one for $500? Ebay.

    I do not recommend that at all, though.

    the ones for $500 and less on ebay are more or less just parts. the good ones reflect their price.
