The Contrabass Flute, a full two octaves lower than the C-flute, is the 'Gentle Giant' of the flute family. It's warm tone may seem not loud at first hearing, but carries in an impressive way. And it is with much pleasure that we introduce this wonderful instrument to you.
We endeavour to keep this flute in stock - please contact us for current availability and price.
Sir James Galway
"Three years ago I bought my first Kingma Contra and Sub Contra flutes and was immediately impressed with the power and colors of these fine instruments brought to my flute ensemble. The latest edition to the Kingma range are the Kingma / Brannen alto flutes and these instruments were played by Jimmy Walker and Burak Besir in the last flute ensemble concert. Many people have come to the class with their own instruments, mostly Kingma and the difference three years later is enormous.. "
About Eva Kingma
Eva Kingma specialises in making the 'lower' sounding flutes. They produce a wide range of flutes including Alto, Bass, Contrabass and Sub contrabass flutes. Their flutes are hand-made and have dedicated time and effort towards building instruments that suit the requirements and physical needs of their customers. The results of their endeavours have led to the development of a line of instruments with increased musical potential which all began with the development of the open-hole alto flute. Following the innovation of the "Key-on-Key mechanism" and the patented "Kingma System ®", a series of open-hole and quarter-tone Alto, Bass and Contrabass flutes were created. As a result of the inspiring collaboration with Bickford Brannen, a full quarter-tone C-flute with the patented Kingma System® is now available at Brannen Brothers Flutemakers, Inc. and Sankyo flutes.
