Late in my college career, I'm looking to purchase an instrument to last me through my professional life. I have a student model Fox appraised for $9,000 and was looking into Heckel bassoons.
I was informed that the Heckel 10xxx series bassoons are widely sought after and also heard good things about Bell.
Can anyone tell me more about these instruments and whether or not it would be better to get a custom Heckel than a used 10xxx?
Money is NOT an issue.

I would ask Trent over at Midwest Musical Imports. He's a fantastic oboist, and since he words at an instrument store, he gets to try them all. He could probably give you some pros and cons of those choices of yours. Good luck with your decision!
