Mollenhauer Denner Alto Recorder in Boxwood

4 reviews
£379.17 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)

Mollenhauer 5222 Denner alto f', boxwood.
In 2002, three years after the death of perhaps one of the greatest recorder makers Fred Morgan, Mollenhauer and the Morgan family began working together on a design of Denner alto to add to Mollenhauer’s already established and award winning Denner series. This partnership has resulted in high quality, well designed instruments becoming available to a wide circle of players. Morgan based his alto design on an instrument by Jacob Denner (1681-1735) from the Copenhagen Museum and undertook the complicated task of converting it into an instrument at a=440 whilst still retaining the essential characteristics of the original design. After years of careful research he designed a brilliant instrument that was faithful to the original in all but pitch. Based on this design, Mollenhauer present an instrument whose design features include a specially stabilised block to help prevent swelling and blocking and a curved windway with concave internal surfaces to make tonal variation easier to produce. With a clear upper octave and stable low notes this instrument also has a clear and full tone.
The Mollenhauer Denner series (soprano) won the highly acclaimed German Music Instrument award in 1999.

Excellent quality

I'm really pleased with my new boxwood Mollenhauer alto and with my shopping experience in general. The staff really listened to what I wanted to get out of this instrument....quick response, smooth slurring over top notes, tuning etc. this instrument has all these qualities along with an exquisite tone, pure yet warm. Good for ensemble and solo playing, good value too.

A lovely recorder to play, pleasant soft but clear tone throughout the range. I look forward to playing this in consort with other recorders, and in small groups with other instruments.
