What' in your case? - Tanya Campbell

Morticia and I have always had a special relationship. Understanding the ins and outs, strengths and weaknesses as well as her little idiosyncrasies. As the years have progressed and my playing has improved I have slowly added to the contents of case, a selection of gear that I consider essential for me to always have handy. I thought I might share with you 'What's in My Case'.



Instrument - 1998 Fox Renard 242D. Modifications include a Musson bassoon spike and an added aftermarket high E key. I have also recently added an Ortwein Woodwind high A bridge key. 

Bocals - Heckle No 0 (Don't ask me why but I do), Fox C No's 1 & 2, Fox CVX No 2

Reeds / Reed case - Selection of Bassoon Factory reeds (of course!) and a MH Legere.  I try and have a few different reeds to suit different ensemble and acoustical situation. The Legere is perfect for any pit work I do with doubling or concert band style groups where I need a lot of projection and stability.  My reed case is my first Bassoon Factory reed case I ever made. Slightly sentimental.

Case - Marcus Bonna case - I am surprised just how much stuff I can put in here.

Other - No wonder my case is so heavy. Geez. 

Double Reed Geek - I carry this instead of any other reed making equipment. - In Australia

Lefreque Silver plated double Reed Sound Bridge. - This little device has opened up my lower register and made slurring much smoother. In Australia

RondoFile - This is my go to folder for all my music. 

LaTromba Cork grease - Just in case. 

Korg Slimpitch Contact Tuner - works in all situations especially in a really noisy space. 

• Seat Strap - I can not always use my spike. 

• Fox Balance Hanger and Kolbl Harness - Just incase I have to stand or need to double on Sax. 

• Pencil and cleaners - Of course. 

Comments - Although I don't always need all this stuff with my work you never know. Where ever possible I have included a link to Australian suppliers of this stuff. Where things are readily available from many retailers I have not worried. I am all for supporting and shopping locally.

I have always found musical instruments fascinating. The precision and engineering of the mechanics, combined with the beauty and flowing lines of the keywork, every aspect of an instruments design has a history. It was no surprise then that when an unusual bassoon modification crossed my bench recently I just had to find out more about it
