  • VSL Poster Shows Double Bassoon

    Hi,

    first of all let me make you a compliment. Yesterday I bought 15 new Instruments. And they sound just beautiful.

    (A tip for everybody wo seeks for a strong "Moog-like" Deep Brass ... buy the Cimbasso!)

    The Double Bassoon ... is it contained in the Ensemble or is it Bassoon 2?

    Greetings Lars

    Hi Lars

    If you mean "Contra Bassoon" with "Double Bassoon" you will find it within Woodwinds II.

    Bassoon 2 is a "normal" other Bassoon than Bassoon 1. We also got 2 Flutes, English Horns, ...

    Hope that helps

    All the best - also for 2014😉

  • Hallo Beat,

    bis auf das Bssoon 2 habe ich alle. Was ich meinte ... auf dem VSL Poster oben links findet man ein Instrument namens Double Bassoon. Unter diesem englischen Begriff ist kein Bassoon unter den Kaufprodukten zu finden.

    Aber wahrscheinlich ist das Double Bassoon tatsächlich das Contrabass Bassoon. Danke Dir für die Info.

    Grüße Lars


  • Hello Lars

    Thanks for answering in German.

    Because of the forum's language is "English" I write back in English (as good as I can...).

    You seem to be right. The Double Bassoon looks like the one here: http://www.gustav-mollenhauer.de/Kontrafagottgesamt.html - a German website - specially for you ;-)

    So Double Bassoon = Contra Bassoon.

    BTW: I also do not own Bassoon 2. I heard that it has shorter staccatos. The ones with Bassoon 1 are a bit long and weak.

    All the best
