product details

Great bass is the name of the bigger bass recorder, which sounds one octave below the tenor recorder and is therefore plays in the deepest tune on a c. The historical description of this big recorder is, from 1619 by Michael Praetorius published organology 'Syntagma musicum', simply the term “bass”. For the bigger recorder ensemble the great bass is a sound-enrichment.

Further does its warm depth animate to play quartet literature of the common soprano-alto-tenor-bass- composition in deep tuned 8-foot-tuning- tenor-bass-greatbass-contra bass- one octave deeper.
A wonderful sound experience as well as for players and audience!
Also modern literature exists for this instrument and gets a great sound in Jazz as well.
