The Howarth of London Academy Student short reach bassoon is based on Howarth’s flagship bassoon. It is ideal for younger students and those with smaller hands, due to its adapted key mechanism. It has a stable full-textured and rich tone.
Howarth’s bassoons are manufactured in Germany from matured smooth mountain maple wood from the Bosnia, where the climate makes for extremely dense wood.
The Howarth Academy Student short reach bassoon has its wing thumb key touches extended in length to reduce the reach for the left thumb, key touches for Eb & C# on the long joint repositioned for greater comfort, 4 rollers from F to Ab for the right-hand little finger, and C# to Eb for the left-hand little finger, and no Bb for the right hand 3rd finger. The bore of the wing and both sides of the boot joint are lined for extra protection. All of the finger holes are lined in hard rubber. All the key work is silver-plated.
