In the Kunsthistorische Museum of Vienna is an old renaissance recorder with a wide bore and a large flair in the bell. This instrument is believed to be similar to the instruments Sylvestro Ganassi may have used. The Von Huene Workshop's Ganassi recorders have a large bore like the Vienna instrument and will play the most demanding music of sixteenth and seventeenth century Italy.

This Ganassi recorder is designed to play with standard Baroque fingerings instead of historical Ganassi fingerings. This recorder is pitched at a=440, but is available in two pieces with the option of a corps de rechange for a=415 upon request.

With Cavallaro roll bag, oil, cleaning rod.
