8120 renaissance sopranino, maple, baroque fingering. The famous collection of instruments in the Hofburg Museum in Vienna comprises a number of well kept renaissance recorders that were built in one piece. Moeck have based their renaissance consort series on this collection, but with all the recorders having tenons in the head and lower joint linked with a short brass tube.

The instruments have a range of an octave and a sixth. Moeck offer these recorders with either renaissance or baroque fingerings, and if desired, they can be tuned to meantone temperament which, when using the original renaissance fingerings will make ensemble playing and the intonation of pure major thirds far easier.

The original recorders were tuned to a=460 but Moeck have scaled their copies to a=440 Hz, which can be slightly adjusted by the short metal ring that links the tenons. When tuning the instruments, special care has been taken that the individual recorders blend well together and cannot be singled out by their sound or volume.

This recorder is made from Maple - European, hard, fine grained, porous and resilient. Specific density approx. 0.63. Soft fundamental tone. Impregnated, no need for further oiling.

With case, cleaning rod and cloth, vaseline and certificate.

Moeck Renaissance Sopranino, Baroque Fingering

Excellent quick service from EMS. I like the look and feel of the recorder, although it is darker coloured than I had expected. I am still playing it in but I like the tone and it's sound is very popular with children. I'm not the most experienced player, so I'm afraid this is not a technical report, but I am finding it very comfortable to play and am quickly getting used to the fingering.
