A baroque flute modelled after August Grenser by renowned maker Martin Wenner. The original flute by Grenser was constructed around 1790 and is in a private collection. It is made of ebony and has four interchangeable joints playing at the pitches of a=440 Hz to a=420 Hz. In addition, the original has a C foot joint and a D foot joint with a register.

This flute by Wenner is single-keyed and pitched at modern pitch (a=440). Unlike the original it is made in grenadilla, which produces a brilliant, responsive tone.
