Grenadilla Descant. with B-foot and triple key B/C/C#.

Harmonic recorders: Mollenhauer & Nik Tarasov/Joachim Paetzold. Scope for discovery: where other sopranos reach their limits this instrument offers scope to venture into new areas of repertoire.

The full round sound refines the high register of the soprano to produce an instrument that combines resonance, sweetness and versatility.

B-foot joint: the modern soprano comes with a Bfoot joint as standard. The resulting longer length of the instrument makes for a more stable and balanced sound across the range. Range: b1 to g4, A' = 442 Hz.

SYNPOR block: artificial synpor is able to absorb moisture through its micropores. This way it doesn't swell and remains stable even after long playing sessions.

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!
