Bassoons were musical instruments which could create low notes which sounded similar to the noise created when a puffer turtle, a reptilian species native to the planet Clak'dor VII, exhaled air from its bladders.

Behind the scenesEdit

Bassoons were first mentioned in the 1998 book Young Jedi Knights: Trouble on Cloud City, the thirteenth novel in the Young Jedi Knights series. The book was written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.
