The Contrabass Flute


Welcome to, a collection of links and information related to this amazing instrument.

I’ve been playing the contrabass flute for around 25 years and have come to love its singing 3rd register, velvety middle octave and fat low bass tones.┬áDespite its large size it is still agile as the normal soprano flute, and has worlds of new possibilities to express, as you will hear on these pages.

This is a living site, so here is a call to all players, builders and composers to send me links, photos and information to be included.

Big best,

Ned McGowan
