  • Harmonic recorders: Mollenhauer & Nik Tarasov/Joachim Paetzold

  • A special development for playing music that is either intended for a G instrument or can be performed better on an instrument of this size.
    The Harmonic Modern Treble in G is distinctive due to its extremely stable and assertive sound, and impresses with its precise brilliance, even in large ensembles with modern instruments.

  • Strong and powerful: this instrument will help you to hold your own when playing with other modern orchestral instruments or with a piano. It will be equally suitable for playing in a pop, jazz or folk band, in a string orchestra or a piano trio – this recorder won’t go unheard!

  • A range of two and a half octaves: the easy response and chromatic mobility as well as the extended note-range surpasses all traditional models.

  • Traditional fingering

    The Modern Alto uses traditional Baroque fingering. Only the notes in the third octave require different fingerings.

  • Block from Synpor-wood composite: This special block provides the instrument with a new musical 'durability': the core of the block consists of an artificial imitation wood product – synpor, that absorbs the moisture of breath condensation without swelling. The synpor core is embedded into a solid, naturally grown, cedar wood shell.

  • Harmonic recorders

    The collaboration between recorder player Nik Tarasov and maker Joachim Paetzold resulted in 1996 in the development of the Modern Alto. It is the first modern recorder that follows the principle of Harmonic recorders with pure harmonics and a long bore: overblowing the first octave will produce clear in-tune harmonics whereas in traditional recorders the resulting sounds are not in tune and can at best be used as trill or alternative fingerings. Unimportant as it may at first seem, the ability to produce in-tune harmonics has far reaching consequences for the entire instrument – an incredibly strong and powerful low register and a range extending well into the third octave!
