Mollenhauer Elody Special Recorder
Mollenhauer's Electronic Alto Recorder 'Elody' in special design. An instrument akin to the Modern Harmonic Alto recorder, the Elody has an innovative, cool design, strong tone, and has a built-in adaptor making it an electric recorder.
Four years of research have led to the development of the most distinctive recorder so far. The Elody can be played both as an electric recorder within various band contexts and acoustically in the traditional way playing standard repertoire. Every Elody recorder has been fitted with a discreet pickup which can easily be connected to any common effects unit. This opens up previously unknown or inaccessible opportunities in the electro-acoustic sound world for all recorder players. Additionally, the acoustic sound of Elody is highly convincing and makes the Elody recorder suitable for use in all types of music. Finally it offers another way to raise the image of the recorder.
