Perfect Performance Plan
Included with every new instrument:

The bassoon crook has, for many years now, been handcrafted the same way by soldering two halves together. Michael J Allen has now developed a technique for hand drawing each tube from a single piece of metal, creating a even thickness thoughout the entire length of the tube. This gives a greater degree of projection and power in the lower register and more balance and flexibility in the higher registers.
