Paetzold MASTER Knick Great Bass Recorder in Birch by Kunath


Great Bass in c, a=440, laminated birch. Paetzold’s unique instruments are based on the principle of a cranked wooden organ pipe. This new design makes use of a knick head joint so that the player can play direct blow. 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, size (without spike) 110 cm, height of the air column ca. 118 cm, 2 pitch plates, normally played whilst seated. Case separate.

Optional case and stand available.
