Ottavino
3 Octaves (37 notes, c' to c''') - 1x4, 17"deep x 33 1/2 wide x 16" high (including stand)
Inspired by the slightly smaller 17th century Ottavino, this instrument is intended to be placed on a table and played while standing. It is pitched a 5th higher than normal pitch (the C keys sound G). It is placed on a stand from which it may be removed to allow for seated playing. Full Flemish papers are included in the base price. Despite its diminutive size, the tone is quite robust and sustained.
