Reproduction Late Baroque Recorders

These diverse early 18th century instruments are authentic reproductions of surviving museum instruments, have inverted sharply conical bores, and extremely narrow, highly curved windways and heavily undercut toneholes. They tend to be voiced rather full and are louder than most other reproduction baroque instruments; they are therefore very well-suited to professional public performances of baroque solo and ensemble repertoire in large venues.
