The majestic and unique aura of the wonderful bassoon is a triumph in musical tonality. Versatile enough to achieve the depth and intensity of Bach’s Bassoon Concerto, to the idiocy of ‘Lucy long’!  The elder statesman of the Double-Reed section sets a true foundation within the woodwind texture.

Here at Normans Musical Instruments we are proud to offer the brilliant Sonata Bassoons. All Sonata products are epitomised by their focus on superb design and build quality. These high standards are continued throughout all their instruments with outstanding playability and affordability.

Perfectly designed for young players to start their double-reed musical adventure. The mini is smaller than a standard Bassoon, making this ideal for younger musicians and early teenagers. The key work is identical to a full-size bassoon which makes for easy learning and continued progression.

Its ABS body makes it easy for small hands to setup and also means there are no risks of cracks or swelling. It offers accurate intonation, rich full tone and is perfect for any young musician wanting to learn.

Affordability. Reliability. Great playability. The Sonata Bassoons will positively resonate with both your audience, and your bank balance!
