SussexCarole Crumhorn - anyone got one? (13) RE: Crumhorn - anyone got one? 18 Jan 12


I play tenor and alto cornamuse. They are softer sounding than the crumhorn but in my opinion are more difficult to play than the crumhorn due to the closed bell on the cornamuse. They are very similar instruments.

Replacement reeds can be a problem (and expensive) if you buy a secondhand instrument by 'maker unknown' as I did - worth checking out first. Off the peg reeds are available for makes such as Moeck

The limitation of only having one octave + 1 or 2 notes can be a restriction at times.

Good Luck
