Bass Singing Voice Type

Bass is the lowest of the voice types. The bass is the guy that sings all the cool notes in the barbershop quartet. The bass or baritone is often the villain, father or old man in theatre and musical productions. Famous bass voices you may know include Samuel Ramey, James Morris, Jose Van Dam, Tennessee Ernie Ford and Barry White.

The bass range is usually F to E but can be as wide as E-flat to F.

The bass changes from chest voice into middle voice around A or A-flat just below middle C and changes into head voice around D or D-flat just above Middle C.

His low voice is his strength.

Fllling the middle between tenor and bass is the baritone. The baritone can usually sing from an A to F below the male High C. The bass baritone has some height of the baritone and some depth of the bass and his range is usually A-flat to F and sometimes as high as G below the male High C. The baritone's register transitions usually occur a the A or B just below Middle C and the D or E above Middle C.
