The Rottenburgh range is without doubt the world's most successful recorder series and remains one of The Early Music Shop's top sellers.
This Rottenburgh recorder is an unwaveringly reliable instrument with a carrying tone, whether played in small or large ensembles.

The Rottenburgh is the instrument of choice for recorder players wishing to play music at an advanced level. This immensely popular range of recorders was originally designed by Friederich von Huene after models by Belgian maker Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh (1672-1756). Versatile, reliable and used by all levels of players, Rottenburgh owners enjoy instruments made to consistently high standards.
