Renaissance Recorders

RENAISSANCE RECORDERS
These modern pitch instruments are made of maple and designed to work beautifully as an ensemble. They are flawless in tone from bottom to top and are based on instruments in the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum. The bores have been adjusted to maintain complementary tone color from the great bass through the soprano. Powerful at the low end and responsive at the top, they incorporate the best qualities of renaissance originals. They blend best with the standard renaissance fingering (open g" on the alto) and 1/4 comma meantone tuning. The solo tenor has a narrower bore and is made of boxwood, giving it a brighter tone and quicker response. The f bassett is available with a direct blow cap, a bocal, or both at an additional cost. A bocal cap is also available for the g bassett but not usually needed due to the smaller size of the instrument.
