Adler Children’s Bassoon Model “1350”, is an ideal beginner’s instrument for children. Weighing just 2.2 kg, the instrument is nearly 30% lighter than the normal bassoon. Making the wood thinner means that the instrument speaks more easily, and the position of the right hand is clearly improved as a result of the pronounced downward curve of the bocal.
The most remarkable feature of the “1350” is the bell joint, which is made of plexiglass. This so-called “Plexi-resonator” is part of the artificial extension designed to achieve the normal acoustic length of the bassoon. This significantly stabilizes intonation in the lower register and overall equality of tone.
