http://www.mmimports.com/ We had a customer special order this octave-bassoon, made by Wolf. It's a tricky little instrument that uses standard bassoon fingerings for the first two octaves, but after that we didn't have enough time to figure it out. A bit difficult for a child's instrument, this is more suited as a tone color instrument in bassoon ensembles. Since we had this instrument for such a short time, we didn't get an opportunity to make a very good performance video, but we know our customers would want a taste of what this little guy sounds like.
