The JP191 short reach C bassoon is ideal for new players with smaller hand spans who cannot manage the weight, or stretch, of a full size model. This bassoon is designed to get the player through the lower grades before a full size model is required. 

The silver plated short reach mechanism allows players of a younger age to start learning the bassoon and offers durability. The maple body adds a warmer tone and a redesigned bell enhances projection and allows the bassoon to be stored in a smaller case. A playing spike and sling ring provides the opportunity to make the instrument lighter and increase playing comfort.
