Basset Horn

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A wood-wind instrument, not a “horn,” member of the clarinet family, of which it is the tenor. The basset horn consists of a nearly cylindrical tube of wood (generally cocus or box-wood), having a cylindrical bore and terminating in a metal bell wide than that of the clarinet. For convenience in reaching the keys and holes, the modern instrument is usually bent or curved either near the mouthpiece or at the bell, which is turned upwards.” — The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1910
