  Rauschpfeife windcap  
  Windcap  

Rauschpfeifen are instruments with a double reed in a windcap (like the krumhorn and cornamuse) with a very wide conical bore, similar to a shawm with windcap, that allows them to be overblown at the octave to give them a range of an octave and a fifth.

The name comes from the German rausch (noise) or rusch (reed). It is an instrument with a very powerful sound, which will project well in an outdoor environment. Equally suitable for a traditional renaissance consort or folk music where it may be used to accompany bagpipes.

Like the rest of the early reed instruments, the rauschpfeife could only play chromatic tones outside the fundamental scale by using cross-fingerings. This weakens the sound of some tones and produces rather unsteady results when played by less experienced performers.

Our instruments are based on originals in the Berlin Museum and the National Museum, Prague. They have a small bell and overblow readily to give a range of at least one and a half octaves with a strong sound. They perform superbly.

This instrument is made from the finest English sycamore and is presented with a cane reed, a reed care and maintenance leaflet and fingering chart.

Each instrument is entirely hand built by 'in-house' experienced craftsmen to special order in our own workshops in Toledo (Spain) to the highest standard of craftsmanship. They come with 12 months warranty and 12 months free access to our 'helpline' for advice on setting up, playing and maintenance.

A soft padded sleeve is available as optional extra if required.
