Bressan Alto a=392 in European boxwood by Martin Wenner. The sound of this copy is keynoted and strong, making this recorder outstandingly suited for French Baroque music.

Pierre Jaillard Bressan (1663 –1731) moved from France to England in 1688 and established himself in London, where he mainly made recorders. His instruments tended to have thick ivory mounts which he added on to his recorders after applying the “golden ratio” to cut them. Preserved original Bressan recorders can be found in many English museums, but also among the collection of Frans Bruggen, Amsterdam, on which Wenner's copy is modelled. Bruggen used the original on numerous recordings which are still enjoyed today. 

German maker Martin Wenner has gained quite a reputation in recent years for fine copies of baroque flutes and recorders.

With handmade bag, oil and cleaning brush.
