Founder Hugo Fox played bassoon for the Chicago Symphony for almost 30 years. While in the symphony, he wanted to improve the instrument that he loved and envisioned a high-quality bassoon made entirely in the United States. After retiring in 1949, he returned home to make that vision a reality. Today, Fox continues to embrace Hugo's commitment to excellence by hand-crafting every instrument in the same location on the Fox family farm in South Whitley, Indiana, USA.
