Low C# to D# Trill Key - Easily Attached!
This amazing new gadget enables the bassoon to very easily play a low C# to D # (Db to Eb) trill - no more wiggling the fingers and hoping for the best!
The additional keywork is very easy to add to your bassoon just screw it onto the bassoon's C# key rod (see pictures for the placement) - there is no need to pay for an bassoon technician to fit this additional key. This key fits keywork that is no more than 4mm in diameter - the additional key can be filed to make it fit larger keywork.
Once you've attached it, simply play a low C, add the new key (C# key) and then just move your little finger up and down on the low Eb key.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Good, but not particularly ergonomic. Works great for the alternative use as an A bridge, but somewhat pointy and difficult to orientate such that it sits high enough but not so much that pressing it doesn’t bend the rod. Would be better if it could be rounded slightly!
I had to file it to fit my Yamaha 811 bassoon, and it was a bit wobbly until I wedged it. But useful I think
My Bassoon, Heckel 15061 has slightly large diameter of Low C# key rod but it was easy to enlarge the opening of "beak" by diamond file because the product is made of solid aluminium.
Great accessory to my bassoon
This little accessory is a lifesaver, we're so pleased you like it. Hope to have you shop with us again soon.
