The bassoon has a deep and mellow sound, but also slightly nasal, just like the oboe. Air blown into a bassoon has a long way to travel: in a regular bassoon, it moves two-and-a-half metres before a note can emerge. In a contrabassoon, which is even bigger, the air has to travel five metres! A contrabassoon can play incredibly dark notes, so low that they almost growl.
