Helder alto recorder, with E-key, piano-key, sound-unit with 3 changeable windway-roofs. These recorders were developed by maker Maarten Helder. The instruments are capable of significantly varied and expressive dynamics over an extended and strong sounding note range. The bore has been totally redesigned and a special key mechanism means that it is possible to over blow the lower tones into perfectly tuned upper notes, the key work also allows for easy playing in the third octave. It features a Piano key in the head joint allowing fine dynamic nuances. It also has an adjustable block allowing for the width of the windway exit to be varied by raising or lowering the block in place and an adjustable upper windway, allowing the player to to vary the distance between the upper windway and the labium. The ’Lip-Control‘ is a mechanism that allows the player to affect the sound during playing, from finest nuances to volume of tone. The recorder also features exchangeable windway covers made of different types of wood types (rosewood, granadilla, synpor) and 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.

With three small plates for the windway, fine mechanical screwdriver, hard case, wiper wool, cork grease, fingering chart, maintenance instructions
