Mollenhauer 4317. Adri's Dream recorder alto (treble) f', pearwood, renaissance (wide bore), baroque fingering, double hole. Made from natural pearwood with dark stained rings, this is an ideal recorder for large ensembles, recorder consort, group lessons or classes, the large finger holes making it ideal for children. Produced in collaboration with reputable Dutch recorder maker Adriana Breukink, the Dream range is a popular choice of instrument with all levels of player. Based on the renaissance style after van Eyck it has a wide bore giving it a broad, full sound, but has conventional baroque fingering. This results in a sound that is full and powerful like the renaissance originals but with an easy response over two octaves. The Dream recorder is also popular with folk musicians who require a louder instrument for performance with amplified instruments.

With cotton bag, mop, cork grease, fingering chart, maintenance instructions.

Great recorder and superb service from EMS!

Being made of wood, and with a larger (Renaissance-style) bore, this beautiful recorder is louder and more mellow than my plastic baroque alto. The larger finger holes are not difficult to handle, but will take a little getting used to (e.g. when playing rapidly from d’’’ to c’’’). EMS packaged it very well; it crossed the ocean to Canada in perfect shape, reaching me in a little more than a week (most of which time was coming through Canada Customs and on the ground in the last 40km)! Thank you EMS!

Good service

I was recommended this recorder by my music teacher. Although it is the cheapest, it has a lovely feel and touch. Pleasant round sound, but I need to get used to the larger holes - still very much a learner on this. And Peter kindly extended the sale for me!
