Rust, Charles Bassoons

There are 3 original bassoons of Charles Rust (1775-1821) in the Hichwa-Rachor database. He flourished in Lyon from 1805 to his death in 1821. His widow, Marie Cognet, continued the firm with Emmanuel Dubois in 1821 and this partnership became Rust & Dubois which continued until 1830. It is interesting to note that two of the Rust bassoons in the Hichwa-Rachor database have long, wooden military bells.
