- Alto (Treble) Recorder
- Modern Pitch
Wenner's Steenbergen Alto in European Boxwood with Green Decorative Rings has been constructed at the modern pitch of a=442, whilst preserving many sound and playing characteristics of the original.
Jan Steenbergen (1676 – 1752) worked in the first half of the 18th century in Amsterdam as a manufacturer of woodwind instruments, especially oboes and recorders. A very beautifully crafted and well-preserved recorder can be found in the collection of Frans Bruggen, who also used it on his recordings.
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.
