What is the lowest note a bass can play?
The lowest note is E (written E below the bass clef staff and sounds an octave lower). The four strings (E A D G) are one octave lower than the lowest four strings of a normal guitar.
Is a double bass an octave lower than a bass guitar?
Nope. They are written an octave higher, but the actual pitch of the guitar is two octaves higher that that of bass. Scale length does not have anything to do with this. And bass guitar and double bass have the same pitch, and are notated the same way.
What is the range of a contrabass?
|INSTRUMENT||WRITTEN RANGE (C4=middle C)||SOUNDING (transposition) than written|
|Tenor tuba, Euphonium||Bb1-Bb4 in bass||Bb: a whole step lower in bass as a transposing instrument, a 9th lower in treble|
What is the low E on a bass?
To answer the OP’s question, the low E on a standard bass is E1, 41.2 Hz and this is the same pitch as the lowest E on the piano (despite being written for bass as if it was one octave above that). The lowest piano keys on a conventional instrument are A0, A#, B0 (lowest note on a 5 string bass ), C1 et cetera.

What is the difference between a bass and a double bass?
The difference between a bass guitar and a double bass is that the bass guitar is smaller, it’s held perpendicular to the player’s body, it’s often amplified via a bass amplifier, and it’s played with fingers or a pick. Double basses are larger, they’re stood upright, and they can be played with a bow.
