The Museu da Música in Lisbon contains one bass dulcian made from Walnut, length 101.0 cm. The key is missing. The bocal is probably not original.
This instrument has a few special properties:
|Top of the instrument with the vertical joint.|
|Top with the bell.|
Drawing of the bass dulcian.
Hole VII is the hole for the front key.
|Cross section at holes I - IX
Note the I shaped joint.
Fingering chart of the copy made by João Mateus after the Baixão of Lisbon, lowest octave only.
c 1 2 3 - - - - - -
Note: number 9 is not used in this fingering chart as a hole or key for the low D is missing on this instrument.
Thanks for the information João Mateus.
