This immensely popular range of recorders was designed by Friedrich von Huene after models by Belgian maker Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh (1672-1756). These recorders are versatile, reliable and used by all levels of players who enjoy instruments made to consistently high standards. Recent innovations have seen Moeck improve the Rottenburgh series even further - they now have an improved bore, an improved curved windway and an optimised under surface of the labium.
The Rottenburgh series offers:
- a more sonorous low register
- a clearer high register
- an easier response for the player
- more variable tone
- a greater dynamic range
- easier handling
