Introducing Shān Bawu: the first in a series of wind instruments recorded by acclaimed world flutist William Arnold. The Bawu is a Chinese instrument with a pure, clarinet-like timbre, and players often incorporate the use of ornamentation, bending tones in particular.
This virtual instrument is highly expressive, featuring multiple transition styles, including slur, slide, ornamental, and MICROPHRASE – four variations of beautiful, elaborate phrases created by William Arnold himself. This brings the Shān Bawu to a new level of realism and color!
