"Speaking as a bassoonist, I can say that Daniel Smith truly has the absolute worst sound I have ever heard. In fact, he is held in an extremely low regard by bassoonists in general.
Dear reader, all I ask is that you wander Amazon and sample the recordings of Dag Jensen, Knut Sönstevold, Bernard Garfield, Frank Morelli, Klaus Thunemann, and Milan Turkovic to hear examples of a truly excellent bassoon sound.
In fact, Tamás Benkócs is currently at volume two of a complete set of Vivaldi concerti. Go sample those as well.
Listen to just one sample of these bassoonists or listen to as many as you can. Then come back here and sample these, and tell me if you are truly willing to waste so much as a penny on this garbage."
