Ranging from Garklein to Great bass
Undoubtedly the most famous consort of recorders presented in new splendour: based on the original set of instruments by Hieronymus Franciscus Kynseker (now kept at the German National Museum in Nuremberg), we have created a nine-piece set of recorders which is optimised to modern standards and demands.
These instruments are ideal for the choric playing of Renaissance music as well as for performing the soloistic music of the Italian Early Baroque period.
- Made from precious European plumwood or historically stained maple
- With sturdy and reliable keys made from matt-polished brass
- Manufactured in the recorder workshop of Mollenhauer in Fulda.
