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. It also lends itself perfectly for solo pieces, e.g. for sonatas with basso continuo. The Rottenburgh is the ideal all rounder: reliable, balanced and with a full, expressive tone.

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.

This best-selling Moeck 4306 Rottenburgh alto is made from East African olivewood - this is a dense, attractively marked wood with a marbled appearance. (Specific density approx. 0.89) The recorder produces a full, rich tone capable of beautiful, expressive performance in both ensemble and solo settings.

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

It is also supplied with a free Moeck Z0002 maintenance set (recorder oil, oil brush, anti-condensant, paintbrush, maintenance manual) worth £21.50.

    Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder

    This recorder has a beautiful resonance and depth to the lower notes, as well as being exceptionally light and with a lovely wood grain. So far into the playing-in process, it has remained clear and I'm looking forward to many years of use. I have confidence that The Early Music Shop will fix any problems, and they were very helpful in letting me try out a variety of recorders and listening to my requirements.

    Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder in Olivewood

    I love the Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder in Olivewood. Although I play other wind instruments this is my first Alto recorder. I tried the Maple and Boxwood but as soon as I heard the warm tones of the Olivewood I knew it was the one for me. The Olivewood is beautiful to handle and to look at. My thanks to the Team at Early Music Shop for being so helpful and supportive.

    The Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder in Olivewood is a pleasure to play. The wood looks and feels beautiful. I am new to the Alto recorder but play other wind instruments. The Early Music Shop have been excellent. I tried a few different woods and as soon as I heard the Olivewood I knew it was the one for me.

    Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder in Olivewood

    I tried the Maple, Pearwood and Boxwood which all sounded great but similar….I picked up the Olive wood which not only felt and looked beautiful but as soon as I heard it I knew it was the one I wanted. I have the Yamaha Ecodear to practise on which is very convenient whilst I am playing in my Olive wood Alto. My experience with the Early Music Shop has been excellent.
