 Re: What notes can the bassoon play without a whisper key?

I actually have an old conn whisper-key-less bassoon... (actually am borrowing one). but it has no key and no hole on the bocal. I tried a regular bocal and it wasn't that bad, as long as you don't need to go too low for too long.

I can play, for the better part, most of the full range (Low Bb to High C and D in treble clef...can't play E and F yet...UGH)
Granted..the middle register where you would open the whisper key (A2-D2) is hell sometimes, and I've learned flicking the hard way!
