got around to fitting my bocal last week and used it at orchestra
rehearsal last night. There is unquestionably an improvement in
projection and the tone is more centered. My wife, who is an oboist,
asked me what I was doing different to my reeds. Worth every penny.

just converted one of my bocals to the bassoonboost system, and
I am now a believer. The difference is truly quite noticeable especially

teacher told my about it and mounted one on my bocal. It's really
great and enjoyable to play with such a plastic 'cork'. The bassoon
boost is a great tool in getting that last extra bit out of the
bassoon. Therefore I want to order another two, for my other bocals.

the Bassoon Boost a few days ago. I’ve been using it for several
days and I like it very much. It’s subtle but it does improve the
way my bassoon responds and sounds. I would recommend it to anyone!!!

cork replacements arrived last week and a few days ago I found time
to replace the cork on one of my Fox bocals with the new device.
I used a glue named WeldBond that takes a couple of days to really
set up. The process is extremely easy. The hardest part is getting
the old cork off the bocal. Kudos to Fox for really sticking it
on there. After about 24 hours for the glue to set I gave it a try
and am glad to report it made a very positive difference. The tone
quality was cleaner, clearer, and definately projected better. I
intend to try it on my Wolf bocals next even though I think they
already do a great job. Overall, my first trial suggests that replacing
corks with these devices produces positive results and you might
want to give them a try. Worthwhile, I would say.

think that there was an improvement in the response of the bocal
now that I got the boost working. I also think the sound is a bit
more focused than before. As if the sound were somehow “tighter”
or more compact, if that makes sense.
