Product information

Pitch Range

Plays B3 to F5, fully chromatic

  • a basic C Major diatonic scale of 12 notes (1.5 octave)
  • total of 19 notes, counting all sharps and flats


The product described here is an 11-hole instrument, with a subhole added at the right-hand middle finger position. The subhole not only expands the range downward by one diatonic in the C major scale, but also provides fingerings for all accidentals within the range of the instrument. Without the subhole, the C#4 is playable only by half-covering a tonehole. The 11-hole configuration is our standard, but we can make a 10-hole instrument if preferred (same price).
