I’m completely unable to sing without sounding like a cat caught in a tornado. But for those who are able to carry a tune, most singing voices will range as either soprano, alto, tenor, or bass.
While most singers tend to stay within their specific ranges, there are those who try to hit a high or low note outside their normal range. But for some very lucky singers, they are able to hit all the different singing ranges without much effort.
One of those people would be Tim Storms, the Guinness World Records holder for “lowest note produced by a man” as well as the “widest vocal range.”
His first world record for hitting the lowest singing note was back in January 2002. But then he broke his own record years later. Storms, who is from Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a bass vocalist who was recorded singing The Lonesome Road at the Branson, Missouri Citywalk Studios back in 2012.
The video was filmed by Alpha Sound in an effort to show off the Sony EX15LP headphones’ quality. When he wasn’t wearing the headphones, he was still able to achieve to the low frequency of 0.189 Hz – which is eight octaves below the lowest G on a piano.
While that is impressive, Storms claims that he can sing even lower than that, saying that at his lowest note he can hit notes only elephants can hear.
The other record that he holds is for the widest vocal range, being able to span 10 octaves such as 0.7973 Hz – 807.3 Hz.
