This immensely popular range of recorders was designed by Friedrich von Huene after models by Belgian maker Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh (1672-1756). Recent innovations have seen Moeck improve the Rottenburgh series even further - they now have an improved bore, an improved curved windway, an optimised under surface of the labium and a new sturdy key system.
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
