A rare and newly crafted 4 meter tall octobass has been unveiled at the Only Connect Festival of Sound, in Oslo.

Invented in 1850, in France by Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume, the instrument has 3 strings and is 3 times larger than a conventional double bass.

The octobass’s lowest frequency is approximately 16 hertz – which is below the range of what the ear can perceive.
