Model 240
The Renard Artist
(Short Bore)

Description
Introduced in 1994, the Renard 240 (short bore) features a tone quality that is more "open" than the long bore. It is voiced to permit the performer to open up and "sing" in solo register, and its tone quality lends itself to solo performance. Frequently chosen by aspiring bassoonists, it has also been utilized in symphony orchestras around the world.

Body
Red Maple, selected for tone quality, naturally aged in our own facilities. Natural rubber linings in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint. French bell (metal ring). Body lock.

Finish
Acrylic Enamel

Mechanism
Nickel silver keys with silver plating. Full German system with additional high D and E keys. Ring key for wing joint third finger hole. Right hand whisper key lock. Rollers on F, A(flat), E(flat), D(flat), right thumb B(flat), and F(sharp), in combination with a crowned E key. B(flat) guard. Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All spring posts are locked with screws.

Intonation
Individually hand tuned to A-440 pitch with maximum resonance and projection.

Bocals
Numbers 2 and 3, CVX Bore. (Choice of any 2, option of lengths 0 through 4.)
