Sarrusophones Boosey, Gautrot, Orsi, Evette, Buffet Crampon, Couesnon, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Contrebass

 

The sarrusophone is a family of transposing musical instruments patented and placed into production by Pierre-Louis Gautrot in 1856.

It was named after the French bandmaster Pierre-Auguste Sarrus (1813-1876) who is credited with the concept of the instrument,

though it is not clear whether Sarrus benefited financially from this association.

 

The instrument was intended to serve as a replacement in wind bands for the oboe and bassoon which, at that time,

lacked the carrying power required for outdoor band music.

 

The sarrusophone was manufactured in the following sizes and had the following theoretical ranges:

E-flat Sopranino B-flat Soprano E-flat Alto B-flat Tenor E-flat Baritone B-flat Bass EE-flat Contrabass CC Contrabass BB-flat Contrabass
