Dolmetsch Bass Recorder

Instrument: Bass Recorder in F with bocal, maple with brass key

Maker: Dolmetsch, England

Pitch: A=440

Total Length:

Notes: A very nice Dolmetsch bass. I like this design because it doesn’t have extra keys and tone holes put in strange places and I find it quite attractive. It certainly looks much more like a baroque bass than 80% of the bass recorders available today. The voicing is fairly open in a typical Dolmetsch setup. Best range is from low F to C in the second octave.
