 Re: Horst Moennig Los Angeles bassoon!

The Moennig family dispersed through the United States and each brother imported instruments from the family business (in Germany). Most just stamped them "Moennig" or "Gebruder Moennig", but Horst chose to have his own stamp made. They are identical to the other Moennigs.

The keywork and quality will depend on the vintage of the instrument. And the bell rings were always plastic...no ivory. So the yellowing is consistent with its age. The only way to make it white is to either paint it or replace it. INHO not worth the effort so long as it protects the bell (its only purpose).

If properly restored and overhauled, many of these Moennigs can be wonderful instrument often with a rich sound, darker and more modulated than student Foxes. Good luck!
