Aulos English Version www.rezanka.at
My Instruments are orientated on
a set of auloi which where found in Alexandria and which now belong to the Louvre
museum in Paris /FR.
Both chanters have the same length
but reach different pitches.
With straps or plugs it is possible to play different tones.
Here you can see videos from Barnaby Brown with much information and sound examples: VIDEO1 VIDEO2
Modell Louvre2 - after plans from Dr. Stefan Hagel
This modell is very close to the original instrument. All tone holes are not in a line, they deviate in radial positions. All positions and diameters of tone holes are like the original instrument. The place for the reed is outside strenghtened with a compression made of thread. These compression was not found on the original instrument but it makes sense to do it, because there is only 1,5mm wood left and the reeds are plugged in in this place.
