Rottenburgh

Initially from Salzburg, Austria, the members of the Rottenburgh family were renowned as musicians and composers as well as makers of woodwind and string instruments.

The models for my instruments originate from Joannes Hyacinthus Rottenburgh and are both to be found in the Museum Preussischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin The alto recorder is tonally very well balanced and usable for all purposes with a perfect response in all ranges. If required the instrument can be made to original pitch (approx. 406Hz.) and with two rings of fossil mammoth ivory.

The voice flute (Rottenburgh) is one of the few existing originals that can easily be played over more than two octaves. It's bore and measurements are comparable to a low pitched descant recorder. The finger holes are extremely easy to reach and it has a beautiful sound.
