Scherer alto in boxwood at a=392. The Scherer alto recorder is based on an instrument believed to be made between 1740 and 1750 by Georg Heinrich Scherer in the small town of Butzbach. The original, now in the private collection of Friedrich von Huene, is in ivory with single holes and plays close to a=410. By scaling the body joint down, the pitch has been brought down to a=392, making it a beautiful, low-pitch instrument. The Scherer alto is a favourite amongst professionals for playing French music and sometimes for J.S. Bach's Cantata No.106: Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit. It is made from selected European boxwood, with double holes and is available with ivory or imitation ivory mounts upon request

With Cavallaro roll bag, oil and playing instructions..
