Küng's Superio series is based on original recorders by Stanesby Jnr. They have a wide, baroque bore which produces a strong sound, rich in overtones. These recorders have a large expressive range and will cope with the most demanding repertoire. The Superio recorders are highly ergonomic, with great attention given to comfort and the ease of fingering. The double bottom C/C# key not only aids with the stretch, but extends the length of the foot-joint producing a highly stable and rich low register.

This tenor recorder is made of olivewood and comes in a hard case with a cleaning rod, cork grease and maintenance instructions.

Early days, but a rich stable sound

I am only two weeks into the playing in period for my olivewood Kung Superio tenor, so these comments are based on very short exploratory playing sessions. I wanted a tenor with a stable rich sound and a bit more 'welly' than my Kung Studio knick, but with the same ease of right hand spacing - and that's what I have found! The tone is even and easy to control throughout the two octave range (nothing adventurously high tried at this early stage!). This was the heaviest of the models I tried, but, as soon as I added a plastic (temporary!) thumbrest, the recorder felt well-balanced, even though the keys prevent me using my little finger as a counterbalance as I am used to doing. The C/Csharp keys are well designed and quiet. At the beginning, I felt there were a couple of notes that were difficult to tune, but that seems to be settling now. I am a slightly 'wet' player, and I do find that the sides of the labium get damp after a few minutes if I let the angle of the recorder drop too much! Overall, I am delighted and excited by the sounds I am hearing in these early days. Ask me for another review in a couple of months!
