A RARE Whitely, 5 key Bassoon, possibly the only one on record. Mark on boot shows "(Eagle under curved line) (?) Whitley, Utica". Of the five keys, four are working and one is absent except for pin mount. Wood shows use, but no cracks. Wing has narrow diagonal sliver missing and does not effect finger holes. No bocal. Shipped in a non-fitting case.
A six key Bassoon marked "(crown logo) Adler, A Paris (star logo)". The wood on this instruments is in excellent condition, not withstanding a newly made bell end. The six keys, however, are not. All six springs are damaged, as is the one key cover. Absolutely worth restoring. A modern, but fitting, bocal is included but no case.
An unsigned 12 key Bassoon with corps de rechange. Original case, original bocal. A box full of early reeds. This instruments has not been abused, but at one time it was abandoned in poor surroundings. As a result, some of the Brass, has corroded and will need to cleaned. I did a small spot with super-fine steel wool, and was able to bring back the original finish. It will just take time and patience to restore this rare instrument. Feel free to ask questions.

Three main body joints are crack free.

A no name six key Bassoon with original Brass bocal. All key springs are working. There is one key cover absent, an inexpensive repair as there is another one to copy nearby. A repair has been made on the upper fingering section (Wing). A small section of wood removed near main joint. No case.
