Polypropylene Renard no heavier than wooden Renard!

The Renard model 41 is our top-selling bassoon for schools but some teachers have been put off ordering this polypropylene model as they’ve heard it’s heavier than wooden bassoons. This is absolutely not correct! The 41 weighs exactly the same as a wooden 222D in the same Fox case: 7.1 kg. We believe this misconception may have came from experience of other brands of plastic bassoon some of which are, indeed, uncomfortably heavy.
