Baroque Alto (Strong sound) 440 Hz

arvidsson-instr-1This is a modern variant of the BA440, with the same bore but with a different wind way and window. The changes are made to achieve the absolute maximal sound volume. It must be played with higher pressure and needs some more air than the baroque version.

It is indeed a wind instrument. The timbre has a high content of the fundamental and will mix well with other modern instruments. I have given the instrument a more modern exterior and make it grenadill wood.
