I bought a bombard years ago. Mine came from Lark in the Morning and I believe it was produced by EMS. These look very similar. Mine was surprisingly well in tune, but very hard to play. A bombard takes a lot of wind and pressure, and they are LOUD!!

It collected dust for a long while until I sold it at a yard sale (after making sure the buyer didn't live on my block).

Thank you very much for your answer!

I known bombard is loud and quite hard to play, but I think I'm determined to play it :D
I live in block too, but I have unfrequented place 3,5 km near my home where I can play. Unfortunately it will be hard at winter...

It wasn't so much that it was loud and difficult to blow, but that I ultimately found no real use for it. It just didn't fit in anywhere for me. But best of luck to you. I hope you do better than I.
