Recorder31 - Day 15
The bass recorder isn't as low-pitched as we often think, as the bottom note is only a fifth below middle C. This is due to recorders being "4-foot" instruments. That is where the bigger recorders come in. The great-bass goes an octave below middle C and the contra-bass goes to the F at the bottom of the bass clef. And it doesn't stop there! The Paetzold design allows for even lower instruments an octave below these again; the sub-great bass and sub-contra bass. Excitingly their range is growing with a sub-sub great bass, something Jo Kunath talks about during our "in conversation with".
