Paetzold MASTER Contra Bass Recorder in Birch by Kunath
Contra Bass in F, a=440, laminated birch. Paetzold’s unique instruments are based on the principle of a cranked wooden organ pipe. The design makes use of a doubled over bore so that the overall size is reduced without any reduction in sound or pitch. It is not only the unconventional yet attractive appearance of these instruments that causes intrigue – the sound throughout their two octave range is very powerful and the large key pads allow for them to be played by enthusiasts with even the smallest of hands.
3 part construction, with spike, 2 octave chromatic range F2- G4, size (without spike) 155 cm, height of the air column ca. 172 cm, 2 pitch plates, normally played whilst seated. Case separate.
Optional case and stand available.
