Hearing about a really awesome upcoming flute concert via the Canadian Flute Association when I was looking after my studio’s Facebook page reminded me that today I wanted to share a bit about a very different sort of flute. The double contrabass flute (pictured above) is the most massive member of the flute family–it stands eight feet tall and uses just over eighteen feet of tubing! So much for flutes being portable!
Listen to the double contrabass flute (and the slightly smaller subcontrabass flute) being played in the video below.
Do you know the song she demonstrates on the double contrabass flute? Tell me the answer in the comments!
