Introduced in 1994, the Renard 240 (short bore) features a tone quality that is more "open" than the long bore. It is voiced to permit the performer to open up and "sing" in solo register, and its tone quality lends itself to solo performance. Frequently chosen by aspiring bassoonists, it has also been utilized in symphony orchestras around the world.

Body
Red Maple, selected for tone quality, naturally aged in our own facilities. Natural rubber linings in the wing joint and small bore of the boot joint. French bell (metal ring). Body lock.

Metal tubes extending into the bore in the finger holes of the wing joint to prevent water from entering the tone holes. All spring posts are locked with screws.
