Stephan Leitzinger has dedicated himself to building bassoons of the highest quality for 25 years. The foundations of this quality are his passion for the bassoon combined with his accumulated knowledge and instrument building experience. Each bassoon is hand-made by Stephan Leitzinger himself, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technological advances, to create an instrument that is perfectly suited to each individual musician’s desires.
Leitzinger Bassoons are made of long-seasoned mountain maple. The storage and selection of the wood is an important prerequisite for a high quality instrument. The special characteristics of the Leitzinger Bassoons are their full, yet flexible tone, that projects well paired with excellent intonation and well-designed keywork. The instruments allow for effortless control of tone colors and dynamics all while maintaining a beautiful sound.
