BLEMISHED: This Satinwood Bombard is 12.25 inches long, the bell is 3 inches in diameter. Comes with a cane reed.
The bombard is a small, double-reed instrument similar to a soprano shawm in range, but shorter in length. It's in the key of A and is slightly shorter than a soprano recorder in the key of C. Bombards are still used in some Celtic music. They are quite loud, despite their small size. Their tone is high and penetrating.
What is BLEMISHED?
Blemished, or Scratch & Dent, products are new and unused with superficial irregularities that do not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument. The irregularities may include, finish blisters, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. These blemished products have codes which end in -1(s) and -2(s). A product designated as -1 or -1S has minor blemishes and a product code ending in -2 or -2S has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs.
Our product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.
