Heckelphone #4992

According to Edith Reiter's 2014 book this instrument was completed on 25 October 1990 and originally sold to a buyer in the UK.

Howe & Hurd (2004) describe heckelphone #4992 as a model 36 voll cons.

As of 2019, heckelphone #4992 was located in London, UK, owned by noted bassoonist, John Orford, who is likely to have acquired the instrument directly from Heckel and played it regularly with many British orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as for opera productions at Covent Garden and the English National Opera.
