Thumbs up what's YOUR vocal range??

Post your vocal range!

Lowest: Low F (1st fret on low E string)
Highest: pretty much high A (5th fret on high E string).....I have hit A# before though
Falsetto: I'm like a ****in girl opera singer when it comes to falsetto lol I can hit normal notes but can also be an idiot and hit like the 22th fret on the high E string

i've got the biggest range of anybody i've ever met so far...
i can go from almost inaudible (no tuner picks it up, its deeper than a 6 string bass by at least one octave if not more) and my highs/falsetto are somewhere in the vacinity of Adam Levine from Maroon 5

Haha, barely any. A lot of songs go too high and too low for me. But I'm sure I have awful singing technique.

F#2 to C5, and i can hit notes within a major third on either side, but uncomfortably so.

i never checked my range with falsetto.

i can hit from the low D in drop D to the Bb on the high E string.
(thhe Bb only on good days, but i can hit the A consistently).
like alot of people in this thread, im not sure about my falsetto.
but thats cause my falsetto sounds like a cat being skinned alive.......compared to my normal singing voice which gets alot of compliments.

haha i dont know why my falsetto sucks such balls.

Pretty standard tenor range, about A2-C5 without falsetto
I've kinda got a low G the first few hours of the morning and I can keep pushing the high end up to about Eb5, maybe even E5 but anything above the high C sounds really strained

Falsetto I really don't know, I never really developed mine cause I've always found it hard to flip without sounding like shit, but I know I can at least scream out an A5.
That's not really musically useful with the way I sound up there though lol

If you just want to include all of the sounds I can reasonably squeak out, regardless of tonality (so, including vocal fry and whistle voice) then I'd say B1-G6. If you talking about a tonally consistent, usable range that could still pass as full voice, I'd say D2-C6 (drop D on a guitar to whatever the soprano high C is.)

I'm not sure people are really aware of how low a bass guitar is. Some of the world's most accomplished basses couldn't possibly hit the low E on a bass guitar. I'm getting the impression that perhaps people are hitting the equivalent of low Es and Ds on a standard guitar with an especially dark tone and thinking "man, that's really low, like a bass." It would help to do a descending scale, starting from the low E on a guitar. If anyone here can actually do that with any reasonable semblance of decent tone, you've got some phone calls to make, and some concert halls to sell out.

From what I can gather, I can hit an A below the low E string on a guitar, up to the 12th fret on the low E string.

I don't really have a very large range. I used to be able to sing louder, but I let myself slack off a few years ago. I'm currently in the process of doing a few excersies to get my range back to something more respectable.

As well, for as long as I can sing, it almost pointless for me as I never sing that low in a song.

I've got quite a nice range i have to say. I can sing about a really low A to pretty high D. According to my old vocal teacher I appearantly can sing lower than most russain opera singers. who knew. as for my high singing it's pretty good. I can hit the notes with plenty of power and sustain but when I try to go too high it sounds like sh*t. im still trying to expand my range so i can hit those higher notes tho. As for my falsetto. at it's highest......sounds like a combination of Rob Halford and a school girl tied to a railroad track with an approaching train

I'd like to hear that low A. Care to record it?

Anyways, here's mine:

Comfortably, E2 to E4.
On a good day, or really pushing, D2 to F#4, although I've had a few days where I could hit a G4. And of course some of those sick days when I could hit like a C2 or a B1. But those don't count.

So, if you're counting only notes that I can hit comfortably any day, E2 to E4. If you're counting notes I can usually hit, it's D2 to F#4.

Edit: Actually I can hit a B1 at the moment. I guess I'm a little sick.

Are you all counting vocal fry at the bottom of your range? cause most of you seem to sing lower than anyone I've ever known and I doubt you're all deep basses.

BTW I've finally figured out how to use the high head voice stuff without sounding breathy and straining my voice, I kinda first got it by doing a staccato "ow" sound and now I have a nice loud high A without any pain in my throat. Gonna see if I can get up to that soprano C when the practise rooms here open again =D

that is something we all have to hear. Am I right?

As for me, I have something like F#2 - A#4 (when I'm wormed up of course. I can go lower, but it sounds stupid).
Falsetto up to B5. But what's the point in it anyway?
*maybe i'll do a record of my range. Would like to hear it for myself)*

+1.

There are 4 vocal registers: (from low to high) vocal fry, modal, falsetto, whistle. Your "vocal range" only counts the modal register. NOTHING else.

My real vocal range is like a C2 on a piano to a E4 (E above middle C) falsetto gets me to about an A above the soprano staff.
