SKU KUN5991

The exceptional E3 "Eagle" alto recorder came into being as the result of a search for a unique alto recorder and the cooperation between Adriana Breukink, Geri Bollinger and the recorder manufacture Küng.

The wide bore, the metal labium, the octave key for the high registers and the key system with e’ foot extension provide for a full and powerful sound.

To allow for ensemble playing with modern instruments, the E3 has a strong lower register and a chromatic range of over 2½ octaves.

Excellent for playing with modern instruments

I got this specifically to play with a group including flute and an amplified acoustic guitar. And for that it certainly hasn’t disappointed. It’s so nice to actually play as part of the group rather than be drowned out most of the time. I know another option would be to use a mic, but that adds a layer of complication and with the E3 it really isn’t necessary. What did surprise me is the tone. I was expecting not to like it that much and accept there will be a trade-off. However, it’s actually very nice, albeit different from a baroque instrument. In fact I’ve had a number of people say how much they like the sound. I’ve used the low E a few times, but I’d say it’s a nice to have rather than essential. Ditto the extended third octave, and the octave key takes a little getting used to. Overall, very happy with it and I’d recommend to anyone looking to play together with modern instruments.
