HARMONIC RECORDERS
The collaboration between recorder player Nik Tarasov and maker Joachim Paetzold resulted in 1996 in the development of the Modern Alto. It is the first modern recorder that follows the principle of Harmonic recorders with pure harmonics and a long bore: overblowing the first octave will produce clear in-tune harmonics whereas in traditional recorders the resulting sounds are not in tune and can at best be used as trill or alternative fingerings. Unimportant as it may at first seem, the ability to produce in-tune harmonics has far reaching consequences for the entire instrument – an incredibly strong and powerful low register and a range extending well into the third octave!

ELODY

'Premiere’ of a new type of recorder: An instrument based on the Modern Harmonic Alto with innovative cool design, powerful tone and provision for connection for use as an electric recorder.

Function: The Elody can be played in two ways: its purely acoustic sound is impressive and allows the instrument to be used as a Modern Harmonic Alto that is suitable for any musical style and context; every Elody has been fitted with a hidden pickup. The combination package includes a special cable for easy connection to any common effects unit or amplifier.

MAARTEN HELDER

Lavishly equipped instruments developed in cooperation with the Dutch recorder maker Maarten Helder. Detailed technical extras place these recorders in the “de luxe” class of Harmonic recorders, the new type of recorder with in-tune harmonics.

Expressive, elegant and dynamic sound: the right instrument for those who are looking for new recorder sounds. Assertive and strong so as to be audible in combination with modern orchestral instruments: in modern music, jazz, folk or indeed traditional recorder repertoire.

Extended range into the third octave: this enables access to new repertoire in areas so far unavailable to recorder players, eg. flute repertoire.

The fingering for the two lower octaves follows traditional “Baroque” patterns; special fingerings are only required for the third octave.
