Contrabass

Generally only used for Instruments rather than Voices (in contrast with Soprano, Alto, Tenor etc) and is very low in pitch. Unlike the otherterms which denote a range, Contrabass designation is relative in the instrument family.It is therefore possible to find Double Contrabass and Subcontrabass instruments.

Contrabass is normally understood to be an Octave below Bass and examples are the Double Bass, Contrabass Saxophone, Contrabass Clarinet and Contrabass Flute
