Hard Silver - C ("Z" Alloy)

​Soft Silver - CC ("N" Alloy)

V - Particularly suited for older Heckel instruments.  Tends to raise pitch in tenor register and better response in the high register. 

XL Bocals are Heckel’s modern version of the pre-war bocal bore.  Excellent on Fox bassoons, especially Renards!
