Book Series Chalumeau

Presenting our new Kontakt Library, Book Series Chalumeau, with True Legato articulation and a unique warm and folk tone.

The chalumeau is a single-reed woodwind instrument of the late baroque and early classical eras. The chalumeau is a folk instrument that is the predecessor to the modern-day clarinet.

The instrument used was handmade by the great artisan and flute maker Max Brumberg with Cherry Tree Wood. We sampled Vibrato and Non-Vibrato Legato, Staccato and more than 50 phrases.

Please note: FULL retail version of Kontakt 6.6.1 or later is required. NOT for Kontakt Player.
