Bass flute in C € 5,000.-
Compass c – E”’
Body & headpiece silverplated
A perfect flute for those who want both aspects of ensemble playing and solo playing.
The flute is held vertically, with the aid of a sax strap.
With its wide bore it is a louder instrument than average. It could easily replace two (more expensive) instruments. The bore of the tube is slightly different from regular flutes. This makes a very regular tube with very low toneholes. Therefore the body is in one piece.
Because of its special qualities, the warm sound, easy attack and big low register, solo players appear to like the instrument as well as band players.
