Wenner's Terton Soprano Recorder in European Boxwood has a round and earthy sound. It is not “sharp” but elegant and soft in the high registers and its pitch is a=415 Hz.

Engelbert Terton (1676-1752) was one the most famous recorder makers of early 18th century Hollland who had his workshop in Amsterdam. The original is extremely beautiful and can be found in the collection of the The Hague’s Gemeentemuseum. It is made of stained boxwood and decorated with lovely engraved openwork silver rings. Its sound is still good.

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.
