 Holding a bassoon
Author: FrankM 
Date:   2010-06-09 12:34

I've wanted to get my hands on a bassoon for years but the $$ has been a deterent. Through a fortuitous accident, I am now in possesion of a freshly overhauled Linton bassoon which is fine for my needs at this time. As a long time clarinet/sax player I'm having a blast with my new toy.

My only really pressing issue right now is holding it comfortably while playing. Neck straps make the bassoon feel unbalanced to me and the time honored seat strap doesn't feel much better. Is there a commercially available stand that can hold a basson in playing position? I have a stand for my bass clarinet that holds the bassoon very securely, but not in a position anywhere near playing.


thanks

Frank
