0056 - Soprano Rauschpfeiff in -c'-

A Rauschpfeiff is a fairly loud and rich sounding, capped double-reed instrument of the Renaissance with a tapered, conical bore. It’s sound is penetraitingly straigh-forward and therefore very useful and welcome to sound a melody in parades, dance bands of any sort and in combination with a variety of other wind and string instruments. The fingerings are basically the same as for Recorders, Kelhorns and Crumhorns, but Susato Rauschpfeiffen can be “overblown” into a second octave for an extended range of one octave and a fifth, from -c’- to -g’- for soprano sizes. A perfect range for a large selection of tunes!
