Inspired by the Fox II bassoon, the modern incarnation of Hugo Fox’s original design, the Fox 222 boasts a warm, even tone and stable intonation across the full range of the instrument. Like all of the company’s instruments, the Fox 222 possesses exemplary keywork, courtesy of Fox’s expert craftspeople and assemblers, comprising a full German key system with silver-plated keys. Double reed players at Sweetwater appreciate Fox’s thoughtful touches such as providing two C bocals (#2 and #3 lengths), a high-quality Fox bassoon reed, a hand rest, neck and seat straps, and a cleaning cloth and swabs. A superior entry-level instrument for young players, the Fox Renard 222 is a worthy companion for the first steps of your musical journey.

The Fox Renard 222 model bassoon features a body hewn from carefully selected maple, which has been cured to provide an exceptionally rich and resonant tone, and a German bell accented by an attractive synthetic-ivory ring. Plus, it’s equipped with a body lock. Additionally, the wing and small bore of the Fox 222’s boot are lined to prevent damage caused by moisture buildup, and nickel-silver water tubes extend into the bore to prevent moisture from accumulating in the toneholes.

Fox pours their heart into their keywork, and it shows. Beyond offering a plethora of key options, Fox plates all of their keys in-house, and every key is hand mounted by their team of expert assemblers. The Fox Renard 222 model bassoon offers a full German key system with silver-plated keys, which includes rollers for the right little-finger F and Ab and left little-finger Eb and Db. There is also a short-reach left-hand third-finger plateau key, which helps younger players maintain proper hand position.

Fox Products: a storied commitment to excellence

As the principal bassoonist for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1922 to 1949, Hugo Fox was a dedicated and passionate musician. After retiring from performing, Hugo devoted himself to crafting a world-class bassoon made in the United States, leveraging his intimate knowledge of the instrument. In the summer of 1949, he returned to his hometown of South Whitley, Indiana, to found the Fox Products Corporation. Focusing solely on bassoons, contrabassoons, oboes, and English horns, Fox produces premium instruments for every player level. Fox instruments are precisely manufactured with the highest-quality materials, including hand-selected and cured woods, and they offer an incredible range of keywork options to satisfy any musician’s unique needs. Today, Fox Products continues to honor Hugo’s commitment to excellence, superior design, and unparalleled craftsmanship.
