Bassoon Cases & Gig Bags

The idea of a professional bassoonist entering a concert hall without a case or gig bag for their instrument is inconceivable. After all, the bassoon is considered to be one of the most challenging instruments to master, and its playability and deep, rich tone depends heavily on how much it's taken care of between performances. If you're in the market for a bassoon case or gig bag, there's bound to be one to your liking in this section. In fact, today's bassoon cases and gig bags are made by respected brands in the orchestral world, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your woodwind instrument is well guarded when it's out of your hands.

You'd be hard-pressed to find any musical instrument that doesn't require a case or gig bag, but woodwind instruments like the bassoon especially need one because of their fragile nature. Since you'll be doing a lot of travelling to and from rehearsals and recitals, your bassoon will need to be protected from impact with other objects. Sudden weather changes are another reason why you need to keep your bassoon in a case or gig bag - a fluctuation in temperature can significantly affect your bassoon's pitch: when the temperature rises, it will go sharp; when it lowers, the pitch will go flat. Storing your bassoon in a case or gig bag is a simple solution to help prevent this from happening.

So without further hesitation, let's take a look at an option on this page. For those who own Renard Bassoon Models 41, 51 and 222, check out the Fox Case Cover for Student/Standard Bassoon. Boasting an exterior pocket for accessories, this full-zippered case cover is beautifully designed to ensure your bassoon stays in tip-top condition for many years to come. Fox also offers a Standard Wood Case for Model 1550. If this sounds more like what you're after, you can easily find it in the drop-down menu under "Choose Style".

As you can see, high-quality bassoon cases and gig bags are very easy to come by on today's music market. Of course, it's really no surprise: the fact that anyone would commit themselves to such an amazing skill like playing the bassoon automatically warrants a case or gig bag that was made with careful attention to the smallest detail - and that's exactly what you'll find in this catalog.
