vruchthout, messing en kurk, l 36.0cm. More details

The ranket or racket was already known at the beginning of the 16th century. This example is, in fact, an 18thcentury bassoon in which the single wind channel is so contorted that it fits into this compact shape. The finger holes can be seen on the exterior of the instrument.
