EMS Bass Cornamuse Kit
We are delighted to introduce a new range of cornamuse, the first of a series of exciting new projects between EMS and Jo Kunath. The cornamuse is a windcap instrument, which resembles a straight crumhorn. Both instruments have a similar range but the cornamuse has a slightly softer tone due in part to its closed bell, which allows it to blend well with other instruments such as recorders.
Our new SATB cornamusen are also available in kit form for home assembly. Our cornamuse kits come with two upward extension keys and plastic reeds for ease of playing and maintaining the instrument. The cornamuse is one of the easiest kits in our range to build. It comprises three main sections, a windcap, straight stem and small resonator all turned and ready for final sanding, All the hardware parts, brass ring, extension keys, springs and cork are included.
The EMS bass cornamuse has a range of F - bb, and comes with plastic reed and two upward extension keys. The bottom note is produced by a lower key operated by the little finger of either the left or right hand.
