Clarinetist: "At least I've got a girlfriend, you bassoon."
Trombonist: "Ouch, no need to get nasty."
Me: yes, the past 5 people to walk past have said that. But that still doesn't mean you can put drugs in it, you disrespectful bassoon killer.
Bassoons produce a dark rich tone in the hands of an experienced player. However, anyone else sounds like they're killing a large beast.
Bassoons require a double reed.
this instrument produces a deep rich sound that if played incorrectly can sound like something is dying. which is why the majority of people should not play it. for in the wrong hands it sounds awful. in good hands of a skilled musician it has a beautiful sound. as long as its a wooden bassoon, they make them in plastic for student musiciains, i don't reccomend it.
the bassoon has 13 thumb keys. its rather intense and you really have to have skillful fingers to play a bassoon.
especially since you have to get used to holding some holes half way.
the bassoon is a base clef instrument that really brings in a quality base sound to the orchastra.
if you're looking at someone who is a bassoonist beware they're quick and will most likely kick your ass. That is if you harass the instrument they've spent way too many hours trying to perfect.

kelsi: no dummy its a bassoon

very hard to play.
must be good at blowing and moving fingers fast.
also you loose breath fast and it's very expensive.
makes people jealous.

It is thought to have been designed by the devil himself.
