The Bassetto in History My Bassetto Bassetto Practice

Bassetto – an Instrument for Children?

Children who want to learn double bass sometimes begin on the bassetto –
a mini double bass which has been used for some time in early musical training to introduce even six to eight-year-olds to the double bass. What is less well known is that there was a historical instrument with the same name, which was used for various purposes in different periods and regions.
