You may run into more than a few problems with that bassoon.

For starters, 99.9% of bassoonists in North America play on Heckel or German system instruments. The fingerings are different, and the so are the reeds.

As for the bocal, it's going to be difficult to find.

On the positive side, the Oubradous books include a fingering chart for French bassoon.
