Fagonello, another small bassoon

Haven't heard of this one before. The Fagonello seems to be the latest of a number of attempts to build a bassoon which works for kids (mini-bassoon, fagottino, tenoroon, etc.). This one is nontransposing, and is basically the same as a full-sized bassoon, it just simplifies and moves some keywork, and cuts off the bottom couple of notes. The result sounds pretty good to my ear, at least compared to the other ones I've heard on YouTube.
