Woodwind: Bassoon repairs

Materials: We use Lucien Deluxe Waterproof Mypads: Waterproof tan leather pads with deluxe pressed felt, for bassoons.

Blue tempered needle springs and fine quality imported felt and corks.

Putting your bassoon back together is the most labor-intensive part of the setup process. Each key is meticulously reassembled. The pads are leveled and diligently checked for any potential leaks, one pad at a time. The key venting is optimized for even sonics and accurate intonation. The pad height is set to your personal specifications. And the spring tension is adjusted for an even feel and quick action.

Finally your bassoon is play-tested and spot-checked for accurate intonation. Enjoy the confidence of knowing your bassoon is being set up by a shop whose staff actually plays the instruments they work on!
