There are several contraptions that can arguably be considered the first bass clarinet. Probably the earliest is a dulcian shaped instrument in the Museum Carolino Augusteum in Salzburg. It is incomplete, missing a crook or mouthpiece, and appears thus far from the first half of the eighteenth century. Its wide cylindrical bore and its fingering imply it was a chalumeau or clarinet in the bass range. Four nameless bass chalumeaux or clarinets curiously dating from the eighteenth century and having from one to six keys also seem like among the earliest examples, and one in specific has been advised up to now from before 1750. However, the authenticity of at least one of these instruments has been questioned. Additional designs were built by many other makers, including Dumas of Sommières who called his device a "Basse guerrière" in 1807; Nicola Papalini, c. 1810 an odd design, in the variety of a serpentine series of curves, carved out of wood; George Catlin of Hartford, Connecticut "clarion" c. 1810; Sautermeister of Lyons "Basse orgue" in 1812; Gottlieb Streitwolf in 1828; and Catterino Catterini "glicibarifono" in the 1830s. These last four, and several others of an analogous period, had bassoon like folded shapes, and most had prolonged ranges. A directly bodied instrument with out prolonged range was produced in 1832 by Isaac Dacosta and Auguste Buffet.
