Last week I had this leviathan of an instrument come into the shop for repair. It is truely a contrabass flute. You probably will not see someone busking on a street corner with one of these however, if you get to see a flute choir then it is possible that they will have one of these playing the bass parts. Notice in the first photo, I laid a regular flute in the case with the disassembled contrabass flute. In the second photo my resident administrative wench and contrabass flute holder, Martha, is wishing she were as tall as this instrument. If you would like one of these they only cost $15,000.00! Such a deal.
