This rich wood from East India was very popular in the 19th century but then fell into disuse. Now Mollenhauer has rediscovered this wood for the production of recorders. Satinwood has a silky, shiny surface, is finely-pored, and has a regular grain. The colour of the wood can vary from very pale yellow to a dark golden yellow. A further hallmark of this hard and durable turning wood is its beautifully decorative striped or spotted appearance. Recorder players like the well-centred and brilliant sound colouring that is associated with the harder woods. Mollenhauer uses this rich satinwood especially for the hand-finished baroque alto recorders and also for the electro-acoustic Elody in the unbrushed natural wood model.
