Whole Tone Bass



Claude Debussy, inspired by Balinese music at the 1896 Paris Exposition, began composing with this atonal scale; used, for example, in his piece, "La Mer". Later, television's original "Star Trek" used it in the "beaming up" sequences. TV and film scores frequently feature it for underwater, dream, and "flashback" scenes. The size(voice) bass is one half octave higher than the size(voice) contra bass. The overall hanging length, from the top of the knot to the bottom of the windcatcher is 90". The weight is 45lbs.
