These modern pitch instruments are designed to work beautifully as an ensemble and are flawless in tone from bottom to top. They are based on instruments in the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum. The bores have been adjusted to maintain complementary tone color from the bass through the soprano. Powerful at the low end and responsive at the top, they incorporate the best qualities of a number of renaissance originals. They blend best with the standard renaissance fingering (open g" on the f’ alto) and 1/4 comma meantone tuning. Modern fingering and/or equal tempered tuning are available upon request, but are not recommended.
