Stanesby Jr. alto in grenadilla at a=415. Thomas Stanesby (Senior) established a workshop known for superb woodwind instruments in the London of Handel's time. It is entirely possible that many of the performers in eighteenth-century London used Stanesby's instruments. After the death of his father, Thomas Stanesby Junior became the most widely admired woodwind maker in London, able to make instruments for the most demanding of the avant-garde players of his time. The original upon which this instrument is based is in a private collection and has never before been used for any reproductions. The original, in English boxwood, plays at a=410. This copy is adjusted to a=415, without altering the tonal characteristics and is in grenadilla for players who require more volume and more brilliance for playing in larger chamber ensembles or with orchestra

With Cavallaro roll bag, oil and playing instructions.
