Knick-Bass Recorder

  • Material: Pear wood natural
  • Baroque fingering
  • Double hole
  • With double key
  • This instrument is comfortable for players who otherwise have difficulties with conventional basses, providing comfortable grip, natural posture and relaxed play for large and small people alike
  • Strong, stable, versatile sound: the foundation of the ensemble!
  • Pleasant playing feel due to slim beak
  • Pleasantly clear sound through flow-optimised air flow
  • Particularly robust and reliable thanks to selected blocks
  • easy response by individual intonation of experienced recorder makers
  • Ergonomic key system; changing fingering is made easier by the roller attached to the double key.
  • All Canta double keys are equipped with a handle roller, as one sees on flutes and clarinets. This roller allows you to easily and safely change the halftones by simply sliding over
  • Includes case

A good modest wooden bass recorder

02.12.2015
I use the Mollenhauer 2546K Canta Bass in a small recorder ensemble, mostly for playing duets and quartets. I also have a Canta Soprano, Alto, Knick Comfort Tenor and Knick Great Bass. It is a good series of satisfying recorders.
The instrument is good to look at and is nicely put together. The case is an excellent fit and neither too bulky nor too heavy.
The sound response is good and the instrument is not difficult to play. The windway tends to clog with water very quickly, much more so than any of the three plastic basses I played formerly (an Aulos bocal-blown and two different Yamaha Knick instruments). This is a disadvantage in a long piece, as one needs to clear out the water before the instrument stops altogether! The sound is a little more "husky" than I had expected and I am wondering whether to return the instrument to Mollenhuaer for adjustment.
What I really do not like is the fact that the F / F# keys are counter intuitive: one key for F natural, both keys for F#. It is the same on my comfort knick tenor by Mollenhauer, but surprisingly the knick great bass is the other way round. Very confusing when I have to swap instruments from item to item. I can't think why Mollenhauer did that when most recorder players are used to double holes for C / C# and D / D# on sopranos and tenors, F / F# and G / G# on altos, which work in what I would call int he intuitive way, namely, you cover one hole for the # and two holes for the natural.
Overall, I am fairly happy with the recorder and can recommend it to others as good value for money.

A great bassblock also for beginners with this flute type

Hermann W., 06.12.2009
I bought this instrument out of curiosity for the bass recorder. The sound of plastic flutes did not tell me. That's why I decided to buy this cheap woodwind.

I have experience with soprano and alto recorder. I was amazed at how easy this instrument can play. After a short time I manage almost as well as with the alto flute. Although I am still in the Einspielphase am the high notes come already very well. I'm pleasantly surprised at how quickly you master the instrument.

The sound is very warm and full. The processing is amazingly good for this price class. The mechanics work perfectly. All in all, I am very satisfied with the purchase. My curiosity for the instrument has paid off.
