Additional Info: I've been playing bassoon since 1963. And I'm still trying to figure it out! I had a few lessons with Cecil James and some with Hugh Cooper, but mainly I learned to play bassoon for the Christ's Hospital (Horsham, UK) band.
My chief gig for the last 20+ years is principal bassoon of Symphony Pro Musica based in Hudson, MA. Other orchestras that I've played for in some regular capacity include:
Uttlesford Orchestra (Saffron Waldon, UK);
Norfolk Symphony Orchestra (UK);
Cambridge Philharmonic (UK);
Concord Orchestra (MA);
Sounds of Stow (MA).
My instrument is by Gebruder Monnig (1968).
I have quite a bit of contra experience, too, although I don't own my own contra.
I don't make my own reeds and am always on the look out for reed suppliers!
