The instrument's walls are quite thick which give it a bit more of the 'cannon' feel common to those trying new Heckel instruments. This instrument, like the HKICW and Prudent, also features an 'innie' low Eb key.
This instrument is probably the most recognizable as the original has been copied by many makers. Also, this particular model is used heavily by one of the most visible bassoonists, Sergio Azzolini. This video features him and Ensemble L'aura soave in a performance of the Fasch Sonata in C Major.
*Since June 2012 this has been my primary instrument.
