Cornamuse

Post by busy mole »

Found a cracking new medieval/early tudor instrument, a Loriman Pipe, basically a cornamuse, about 20" long made of walnut a straight bore, with a capped reed, does not take as much breath as a Bombarde, the reed is enclosed so that you do not need to actually put the reed in your mouth, and has the fingering of a tenor recorder.

We got one before christmas,(and can get more), really pleased with it will have it at NLHF in feb. :D

The cornamuse plays like a treble recorder one octave and one note. Quite easy to get a note, and doesn't take an excessive amount of puff (unlike the evil bombarde!). Also shawms, crumhorns, 3 hole pipes, recorders, rackets, among others. Having got a cornamuse I can recommend it, it makes a lovely warm buzzy sound, and looks great too.
