Fox Professional Model 601 Bassoon

The Model 601 was first offered by Fox Products in 1991. Designed to project a large, dark tone to meet the needs of soloists and orchestral players, it was the first fox design with thicker walls and larger tone holes. In addition, it has extra length in both the bass and wing joints to produce an even greater depth of sound and more powerful low register.
