Tenoroons (Pitched in F) and Mini Bassoons (Pitched in G) are a great way to get started on bassoon at primary level. Check with your teacher or contact us for teacher recommendations as to what might be appropriate for your child.
Each instrument comes in a lightweight handy carry case with a fingering chart, cleaning mops and brand new reed. Each instrument is cleaned and serviced and thoroughly tested so you can get playing right away! All of our Mini Bassoons and Tenoroons are German made by Master Maker, Guntram Wolf.
Hire for a minimum of 6 months and we will take care of all maintenance and cleaning for the duration of the hire. Return at any time after 6 months, or consider upgrading to a full sized Bassoon for hire or purchase.
