I have to play with an organ for an audition, but it is on 440hz and my basson is very old, so it doesn't go below 442hz. My teacher lend me a "protractor" for being placed between the reed and the bocal to make the basson quite longer, and I'm trying to buy a new one, but I don't know where can I find information. Could somebody help me? This piece looks like a cilinder.

Thanks a lot. Adrian.

I have only seen it Howarths. It listed as bassoon crook extension, among the bassoon crooks.

Probably a bit late.
Maarten Vonk offers a bocal extension.
For some reason, although there is an English page, it is only shown
on the Dutch page of his site:
