This instrument has a special place in the balalaika family. The largest in size, Contrabass produces the lowest, most powerful dynamics and sound - equivalent to an upright bass. As with all balalaikas, It has three strings, tuned E-A-D. Main Range: E (bass-octave)-A (treble octave). The notation in the bass clef is written an octave higher than its actual sound. The contrabass balalaika is played with a large leather pick, creating a softer, thicker, clearer sound. The technique for playing the contrabass balalaika has been developed and perfected in recent times; with solo performances attracting wide attention among artists as well as teachers and students
