Modern alto (treble) in f', rosewood (palisander), with f-foot joint and double key f/f#. This design was the product of collaboration between recorder virtuoso Nikolaj Tarasov and recorder maker Joachim Paetzold. A little longer than the conventional alto, it has a double f/f# key that firstly gives these notes a significantly more powerful sound than is usual on alto recorders and secondly, enables notes in the third octave to be played much more easily than on a conventional alto. It has a strong, warm and very expressive sound that makes it a versatile instrument capable of playing music from the 18th century to present day. The recorder has a SYNPOR block, a synthetic block similar to cedar, which imitates the molecular structure of wood and which can absorb moisture humidity through its micropores.
