Spike - makes bass recorders lighter

spike makes great recorders easy to play

Basses get goosebumps ?!

The weight of the instrument is completely neutralized. The playing comfort increases.
No neck strap is needed, and if the gooseberry is cleverly designed, you can play the bass sitting or standing.

However, this only works if the adjustment range of the goosebone is large enough. This is the problem with many bass spiked legs on the market.

What distinguishes a good goose-leg?
Good means that the leg has to be so short when it is pushed together that you can reach a good playing position even on low chairs.  On the other hand, the leg must be so long when extended that even larger players can play in a comfortable position.

Another quality feature is the stepless height adjustment. The load-bearing capacity of the leg should have sufficient reserves so that the bass does not unexpectedly "go to the ground" in any situation. 
The rubber foot for sensitive and smooth floors goes without saying and rounds off a good concept.
It goes without saying that the goose leg protrudes into the bore and changes the bore. Nevertheless, such solutions can be found on the market. As instrument makers, however, we strongly advise against this.

More and more F-basses and C-large basses are now supplied with barb legs by the manufacturers. However, many of our customers who wanted to optimize their instruments at Blockfloetensanatorium.de were not happy with the design of the spikes.

Based on the wishes of our customers and our many years of experience with the Paetzold by Kunath Bass spikes, we developed Spike.

Spike can be attached to many bass flutes with the appropriate adapters. If your bass flute already has a threaded socket, Spike can simply be attached to the existing socket.
If your bass does not have a threaded socket yet, it can be used in a specialist workshop. We carry out this work at Blockfloetensanatorium.de at a fair fixed price.

Exhibition Utrecht 2018 - Festival Oude Muziek

Flag of Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht 2018

 The TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht is an imposing building in which music has found a suitable home. Every year in autumn, the Days of Early Music take place in Utrecht's city centre and in the rooms of the TivoliVredenburg Music Centre.

Exhibition of Paetzold by Kunath bass recorders in Utrecht 2018

An important part of the festival is the musical instrument exhibition, where instrument makers from all over the world come together to present their products.

The impressive architecture gives this exhibition a unique flair and charisma that is second to none. At this point, we would also like to mention the highly motivated team, which is committed to supporting the festival's visitors and exhibitors in a way that is in no way inferior to the uniqueness of Vredenburg's architecture.

This is the reason why we at Kunath Instrumentenbau always bring very special instrument developments to the exhibition. This year the light bass recorders from RESONA, which are up to 40% lighter than conventional bass recorders. The material is of course climate-neutral and has many other advantages. We are looking forward to your visit at our exhibition stand. With an equally impressive view over the city of Utrecht.
