Have you a sub contra bass in your consort or orchestra?
I suspect there are very few around!
My group is far too small for such a grand instrument
Mostly alto, plays with Balmain Baroque
Our group (Newcastle Recorder Players) has a contrabass and sometimes a great bass, but not a sub-contra. I don’t even think there were any at the Orpheus Recorder Boutique this year.
I recently went on a spending spree at the Early Music Shop in London and bought sopraninos to contrabasses but stopped there. there are three sub contrabasses listed on their catalogue
Lucky you! Now you just need a case to carry them all.
