The renewal and development of deep wind instruments are in vogue, and in the various families of wind instruments new instruments recently appeared, such as the luphon, the contraforte, and the tubax. The contrabass clarinet, too, is constantly improved. At present a research team of the Music University of Bern developed a functional model of a fundamentally new contrabass clarinet that should be transformed into a prototype ready for serialization in a daughter project supported by the Commission for Technology and Innovation (KTI). The research team presents the functional model and explains the reasons that led to this new design.
