5326 Stanesby alto a=415, Indian boxwood, antique patina. Thomas Stanesby senior (1668-1734) was a London maker and this alto instrument, designed by Ralf Ehlert, is copied from an original in the Frans Bruggen collection in Amsterdam. Faithful to the original model, this instrument has a beautiful, open and strong sound in all registers and is especially effective as a solo or mixed chamber instrument.

Made from Indian boxwood, which is a hard wood producing a clear, round tone. Specific density 0.91. Brilliant, full, round tone.

This a=415 recorder comes with a hard case, cleaning rod and cloth, cork grease, fingering chart and maintenance instructions.

This Stanesby recorder also comes with a free Moeck Z0002 maintenance set (recorder oil, oil brush, anti-condensant, paintbrush, maintenance manual).

Wonderfully resonant 415

I selected a Moeck 415 alto after Stanesby from EMS On Approval Scheme. I chose this over a Moeck and Mollenhauer Denner. For me, the instrument’s depth of tone was the particular appeal. I did however find the Mollenhauer played top F with greater ease but this is also reflected in my somewhat wanting technique!
