Heckel Bassoons

The Heckel bassoon owes the fineness of its tones, its tone colour and register fidelity to the careful selection of the best resonant woods which are furnished with the inner bore and external form after a natural drying-process of more than 12 years.

The careful processing of the wood as well as the use of natural rubber for the protection of the inner bores from decay and alterations of the diapason reduce the risk of cracking or decay of the wooden parts and thus guarantee that the instrument can be played during decades.

The combination of modern metal alloys, new working techniques and the craftsmenship exercised for centuries contribute to the fact that the key fingering of a Heckel bassoon is a precise mechanism, which meets the highest expectations concerning ergonomic factors, smoothness and durability.
