As most renaissance wind instruments, the shawm has a range of an octave plus a sixth, with higher notes available depending on the player, the reed and the playing style. 

Even though most historical instruments point to an instrument with a half-tone step at the bottom (like most traditional bagpipes), the modern standard shawm has been developed to play a major scale with a whole-tone step at the bottom. 

We offer models in C and D at either 440 or 466 Hz.
