Michael Praetorius calls this recorder in its 1619 published organology 'Syntagma musicum' simply “Basset”. It find special use in recorder quartets and – quintets or in bigger ensemble with the recorder orchestra. Furthermore the bass recorder is gladly used in the solo literature of the Avant-garde and in Broken Consort.
This recorder is in most cases produced by machine, in the baroque as well as the renaissance design.
