The first Octobas (also spelled “Octobas”) was built in 1849 by Jean Baptiste Vuillaume, but by the late 1800s it had become a legend, lost but not forgotten for over a century. Then, in 1996, double bassist Nicola Moneta, luthier Pierre Bor and bow maker Piero Cavalazzi constructed the first modern octobass. Over the past 25 years, Moneta has played it in nearly 150 concerts around the world, although it remains one of the few still in existence today.

Technical Details & System Requirements:

The Oktobass stands out as the deepest concert string instrument, reaching a colossal 3.48 meters (11.5 ft) in height. Played from a raised platform using mechanical levers to operate the fretboard, its voluminous body produces a surprisingly delicate character with intense stereo movement and subtle mechanical ornamentation.

The instrument was meticulously recorded by Giorgio Riolo and Daniele Bertinelli at the private Moneta Gallery in Milan, Italy. A pair of large diaphragm microphones close to the F holes captured a dry and intimate sound, while a wide-spaced pair of omnis at 2 meters added a bright and vibrant chamber quality. The mics can be mixed in real-time, offering versatility in sound manipulation.
