    Another Tenor here ... 1-1/2 octave range comfortably. I can get into the Baritone range, but have no projection. Tenors rule, anyway ... lol

    Tenor as well, but with a fatally narrow range. Think James Taylor, or the the former artist once known as Cat Stevens. That about gets it in the ballpark.

    i'm a baritone/bass
    A violist is sitting in the front row, crying hysterically. The conductor askes the violist, "What's wrong?" The violist answers, "The second oboe loosened one of my tuning pegs." The conductor replied, "I admit, that seems a little childish, but nothing to get so upset about. Why are you crying?" To which the violist replied, "He won't tell me which one!!"

    A very gravelly, tuneless bass... think Bob Dylan on a bad day
    Take a look at the Bandit's blog, Americana Avenue.

    My voice is still changing (slowly now), but I think I'll settle into a low baritone range.

    Alas, it's been a day or three since I sang regularly, but in the day I was always happiest singing alto, filled in once or twice when the first tenors needed a hand, was never really happy above high F - and need a running start to get there these days.

    Ditto. My voice has almost settled, probably to something like a baritone, but it still occasionaly hits notes high enough to shatter glass. Our school is doing a production of Oklahoma and my music teacher seems to think I could do a principal part. I've tried singing "Oh What a Beautiful Morning", and seem to be stretching my voice whether I do it up the octave or down.

    I like the question: "What voice do you have?", not "What can you sing?". I was able to answer truthfully.

    Mine is bass, although I cannot sing well and only join a choir. All my temmate say that I sound like a broken English horn
    My vocal range is D2 to D4, and before my voice broke up 4 - 5 years ago, I was a boy alto with vocal range of F3 to D5, and now my falsetto range is F3 to F5.

    Default voice-ing

    In the SATB choirs I sing in I sing Bass, but in the TTBB choirs I sing in I sing Baritone.

    I´m a soprano, my comfortable reach is about C3 to D6, but I can sing an intire octave below central C with chestvoice, and I can sing an E/F6 when I´m properly warmed up and in a good day. My fach would probably be lyric, but I hope to become a coleratura soprano, but I´d have to see how my voice futher develops to see if I will or not.

    My singing teacher is by the way the one who jugded my fach and voice type, the soprano thing is very sure but the fach isn´t. She´s quite convinced I won´t become a dramatic soprano which I´m ok with, I don´t mind whatever fach it will be, I like all of them.

    I'm a Bass.
    I adore art...when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.
