If there is such a thing as a typical person who makes bassoons from scratch, Leslie Ross would not be it. She does not make modern bassoons, which first were developed in the late 19th century, are made strictly from maple, and have an interior lining of hard rubber. Ross makes replicas of historical bassoons of older baroque, renaissance and classical design, using maple, boxwood and fruit woods for her instruments. – from the Bangor Daily Press.
