'I have gone to Tanya Campbell on a few occasions. A couple of years ago, my bassoon just stopped working in the middle of a rehearsal. I had a concert that night so it was an emergency situation. I took it to Tanya and she methodically worked out the issue and fixed it for me. I have never had that same issue since then. She also overhauled an old, beloved Renard bassoon for me. She made it look and feel brand new. She has also serviced the bassoon I play in the orchestra. I am so pleased to have found someone local who I can trust to service and repair my precious instruments. I would highly recommend her work.'

'I am so happy that we sent our orchestra's contra to Tanya for a service. Until now, we had been sending it overseas and unfortunately we were seeing the same problematic issues arising. Tanya was able to resolve these issues and the contra is now playing better than it has done in many years. It is very exciting to have such a knowledgeable bassoon/contrabassoon servicer at our fingertips here in Brisbane. We will definitely be using Tanya in the future and I highly recommend her to other musicians.'

Claire Ramuscak - Principal Contrabassoon - Queensland Symphony Orchestra

 

'For almost 22 years my Heckel bassoon has been making the annual journey to the very same workshop in the US. Tanya has done a few little "emergency" repairs for me in the past and always let me come in straight away. I'd been hearing great things about her more advanced, precision work from my colleagues in QSO, and there were a few niggling issues I finally wanted resolved. She spent the majority of time on my long and boot joints, and quite frankly the bassoon has never sealed better. The response and attack of the low notes is perfect. Wonderfully skilled work and she even finished a day early! I will be back for sure.'

Evan Lewis - Queensland Symphony Orchestra

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
