£4,745.83 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)


Küng's Superio series is based on original recorders by Stanesby Jnr. They have a wide, baroque bore which produces a strong sound, rich in overtones. These recorders have a large expressive range and will cope with the most demanding repertoire. The Superio recorders are highly ergonomic, with great attention given to comfort and the ease of fingering. The contra bass is a traditionally styled straight bass with a crook. The crook is positioned so that the airflow goes directly into the windway, so the responsiveness of sound is not compromised. The thumb hole is indented, and small, and therefore is manageable for players with smaller hands.

The contra bass recorder is made of stained maple and comes in a hard case with a cleaning rod, cork grease and maintenance instructions.

Wonderful recorder

I love this recorder. It’s taken me a few weeks to get used to the different fingering, but can play Bach comfortably on it, which feels pretty amazing on a contra! Only frustration is the stand is supposed to work for both play and non playing. It is great for non playing, but can’t use it for playing as I am too short and my hands are not able to reach the fingers comfortable ( despite being a higher than average female).
