Yamaha Custom bassoons can be heard in some of the world's greatest orchestras, and are considered the finest currently being produced. They deliver a full rich sound which allows control of the most subtle tone shadings in delicate passages, while letting you open the sound up beyond traditional limits. With redesigned tonehole shapes and positions, and ergonomic "finger-friendly" key shapes, Yamaha Custom bassoons have extremely accurate intonation and a comfortable playability. The 821 was designed for players who prefer a great deal of tonal flexibility. It is perfect for soloists and others who desire maximum capability to change their sound qualities. It is available in conventional or 'compact' (as shown) style body configurations.

As most bassoonists know, the bocal affects the instrument's tone and playability to an extraordinary extent. Until now, however, most bocals have been plagued by inconsistency -no two of the same model would sound or play quite the same. The “perfect” bocal has been an elusive goal for players and manufacturers alike. To discerning players everywhere the consistently high quality of Yamaha Super Bocals is a true breakthrough... which can significantly improve the tone and playability of just about any bassoon for any player. Hand-crafted from the finest materials with traditional care and attention to detail, Yamaha Super Bocals are the closest thing to a “Perfect Bocal” ever produced, and have earned praise from some of the most distinguished artists of our time.
