Bassoon Fingering Charts

Below is a list of all available fingering charts for Heckel-model (German) basoons. The fingerings apply to both bassoons and contrabassoons. Each fingering chart is split up by acoustic octaves, whose ranges are notated and clickable. Trills are arranged in order by the lower, principal note.
