    A=466? Shall we start up the low vs. high pitch debate again?

    Well, A=466 is a tad higher than even high pitch, which is A=457hz.

    I did some brief Googling. A=466hz is a Renaissance standard. Also used on bagpipes.

    ... And we have another woodwind for the Exotica area: the Curtal. It's a double reed.

    (Yah. We could have an entire section on Renaissance woodwinds. Yes, I can mention another Peter Schickele recording with Renaissance woodwinds: Bestiary. Out of print, everywhere. I have it on cassette.)

    Bigger is better in my world. I used to play a couple contrabass recorders, and if I recall correctly the intonation was quite satisfactory for something of it's kind. I typically don't like recorders, but the contras were a blast. Good luck finding a nice one that plays in tune, though.

    I definitely think that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQFqYbaiG1w is a really nice sound. I'd like a better quality recording, though.

    I might have to do a feature page or two about recorders, on my blog. I know that there are a few really interesting ones out there ....
