Rippert alto in grenadilla at a=440. In the second half of the seventeenth century, it is believed that Rippert left his homeland for the excitement of Paris where he established himself as a maker of the finest recorders, flutes and oboes. In 1715 he was aging but still working hard, and it seems that his instruments were more in demand than those of the famous Hotteterre. Rippert made several recorders at a pitch close to A=440 (chorton or Venetian pitch). The von Huene Rippert alto gives the serious recorder player an opportunity to play at modern pitch on an instrument that sounds and responds like an original.
With Cavallaro roll bag, oil and playing instructions.
