Immensely popular range of recorders 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 who enjoy instruments made to consistently high standards. They are without doubt the world's most successful recorder series and remain one of our best sellers. The Rottenburgh is the instrument of choice for those recorder players who wish to play music at an advanced level. It is a 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 tone. Depending on the wood it has a warm full sound for ensemble playing and is beautifully clear and expressive as a solo instrument.

Beautiful instrument

The recorder arrived in good time very securely packaged. It is presented in a smart good quality carrying case. It plays beautifully and I am having to restrain myself from playing it too much while I am playing it in! Very pleased with it.

Moeck Rottenburgh Alto Recorder in Pearwood

This recorder is just what I needed to help me develop my playing as an enthusiastic amateur. The sound is clear and the resonance just right for the baroque music I like best to play.

Initial impression

The recorder is well made and pleasure to handle. The sound is encouraging although it is still being 'run in’. I am very happy with it. The advice and service from The Early Music Shop was excellent with very prompt delivery. Thank you. John Wickham

Notes speak clearly and it has a nice tone colour. Great service from EMS too, so would highly recommend.
