Notes Windcap band engraved HANS RAVCH VON SCHRATT & a double trefoil with a right-pointing tail; similar to Salzburg basset M244. Sounding length 1087 mm.

For critical measurements & other details see Adrian Brown's Renaissance Recorders Database; Brown (2005b: 534).

Brown (loc. cit.) considers this to be a non-extended recorder in c (at modern pitch); Haynes (2002) gives the nominal pitch for this instrument as g. Given the considerably shorter sounding length of 1087 cm compared to 1603 for the extended contra-bass recorder in the Munich Collection (Mu 180) I have accepted Brown's observations in this instance.
