Fox Professional Bassoon Crutch with Threaded Stem
Fox Professional Crutch with Threaded Stem
(Threaded Bracket Sold Separately)
The Fox Professional Crutch with Threaded Stem is an upgraded or replacement to the Fox Student Crutch Assembly. It includes a wooden crutch and a locking nut. This crutch set up allows for more customization of the height and angle of rotation for the position of the crutch than is typically found with the Student Crutch. The locking nut fits over the top opening of the bracket and secures the crutch in your desired position. The crutch itself may be ordered in the shape no. 1 or no. 2.
Shape number 1 is thicker than the shape and size of the plastic student crutch, with the pin inserted drilled into the crutch at a slightly different angle than that used on the plastic crutch.
Shape number 2 is larger, longer, and thicker overall than shape 1 and helps the right hand little finger more comfortably reach its keys, while also allowing the contact point to assist in the position of the bassoon in real time, while playing.
These crutches will not work with the Fox Student Crutch Bracket.
Color of the wooden portion of the crutch is currently light brown or dark brown. Request a color preference in the comments box at checkout, subject to availability.
