The Bassoon Bocal From Greece

The Family Paraschos.

From left: Lefteris-George and Averof Paraschos.

****

The small firm Paraschos in Athens, Greece make wooden parts for

Bassoon, saxophone, clarinet and flute.

I find it brave that a small firm make such a revolutionary product for the bassoon.

When I play on a wooden bocal I feel that the bassoon become even more like

a woodwind instrument.

The bocals are normally made in size no1, but it can also be ordered in

size 2 and 3. The price for one bocal is 600 Euros.

The wood - guarantee for these bocals is 5 years, be careful to not use to thick cork

that is pressed into the bassoon, that COULD destroy the bocal,

that is NOT included in the guarantee.

Thank you to the Paraschos family for making such an event in a big market.

The Paraschos family has their web site here:

The New Paraschos Stright Bocal

(Made in July 2006)

( Complete view )

This beautiful product is given to me by

the master Parashos.

This bocal has a stronger and brighter sound

than the December 2005 bocal. I also find

it easier to play in the high register.

A superb product!
