Kingma Bass flutes are renowned worldwide for their flexibility, response and power over all registers. With the increase in available repertoire and the versatility of today’s musicians, the use of bass flutes has dramatically increased in recent years. It is possible to offer a solution for any performance task. The very ergonomic design and well balanced mechanism of a Kingma Bass flute has resulted in much more comfort during performance and rehearsal. This stimulates the player to use it more and more. We are convinced that this instrument has gained the respect it deserves. We feel honoured to present a scale for the bass flute designed by Albert Cooper. A Kingma Bass flute is silver plated and comes with a solid silver headjoint, silver lip plate and embouchure. All instruments are built to a scale of A=442 Hz (or adjusted on request). Every instrument is delivered with a custom made case, nylon case cover and cleaning rod.
The Kingma Bass flute is available in a version with five open holes. This model is equipped with open holes on the A and E (the two middle fingers), B (thumbkey), G# and F# keys and is often ordered with a B-footjoint. This is a wonderful instrument for contemporary repertoire and extended techniques.
