Quote from this site: Welcome to the Baroque Bassoon Home Page. It grew from my own trouble in getting access to this information when I first considered purchasing an instrument, and I hope that it will help others across the globe to get over the initial hump of getting started, when you are not fortunate enough to have a qualified teacher at hand. However, I do hope that some of the information contained here (e.g. the section on "Makers" and "Reeds") will also help more advanced players.
Quote from this site: The Dulcian pages; some info on baroque bassoons, some info on bassanelli, recorders, a contrabass saxaphone in Leipzig. Links to other baroque bassoon pages.
We received an a-mail from Robert Cronin: I have been making renaissance, baroque and classical double-reed instruments since 1981. My instruments are described in my web site. Shawms, large oboes, curtals and bassoons, bocals, reeds and reed making tools.
