This new, large portative, in the tradition of late gothic instruments, offers a vast range of tones in the lower Altus pitch.
Wide, fully chromatic range of tones of 2 1/2 octaves; powerful-dynamic sound, made for smooth or/and expressive play and fascinating sound effects.
All the above features with minimal weight and high mechanical stability at the same time.

The keys (either a piano-type or a button-type keyboard is available) are made of selected fruit-tree wood and maple.

For a quick and easy transposition, e.g. 440 Hz - 466 Hz, you can get a "transposing keyboard" as an option.
