RECORDERS (in two pieces)
STEENBERGEN soprano at a=440 in c". After Frans Brüggen's superb a=410 original, this beautifully balanced modern pitch soprano has the warm tone needed for ensemble playing as well as enough power to be used with strings. It has the full, colorful tone characteristic of Steenbergen's recorders.
Instrument in boxwood or grenadilla: $1,900.00
BOEKHOUT soprano at a=415, 410, or 407 in c". Based on an original in ebony with ivory fittings, pitched a=410, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. The powerful low register and responsive upper range make this instrument a favorite with demanding performers playing at old pitch.
