How low can you go? Singer Tim Storms holds the record for the deepest voice of any human being

How low can you go? Singer Tim Storms holds the record for the deepest voice of any human being

The man who holds the record for the world's lowest voice can hit notes so low that only animals as massive as elephants are able to hear them.

U.S. singer Tim Storms can reach notes as low as G-7 (0.189Hz). That's a remarkable 8 octaves below the lowest G on a piano. So low, in fact, that even Storms himself cannot hear it.

'I can feel them though,' he told CNN. 'I kind of hear them in my head as far as the sound my vocal chords are making but, as far as the frequencies, it's something more or less that I feel.'

That is pretty crazy. I guess that is a bit lower than the Beach Boy (never knew which one) singing the word "Bahamas" in Kokomo. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

It's lower than the Temptations' deep-voiced basso, Melvin Franklin, also.

May be lower than God's normal voice, even. LOL!

Oak Ridge Boys (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cux9ItNUjYM)

After about 1:19, the oompapa mawmaw guy hits some deep low notes, for comparison.

This ancient group will be featured at the Republicans' national convention in Tampa soon.

True, but happy and harmless.

I cut a lot of slack on taste and preferences.

Keeps me from advocating the outlawing of heavy metal, rap, and many other horrible genres. I satisfy myself by turning the channel in those cases, LOL!

My friends sometimes complain about my choices of music, elevator music or put you to sleep music, among the nicer things I've heard. But mainly they have to compliment the old school music everyone knows was the shnidt.
