RA Flutes 440 Hz

ra-008

This instrument type is a new kind of recorder, without any historical prototypes. It is invented, designed and developed by me.

The RA-flute type recorder sounds very much like a renaissance recorder, but plays like a baroque recorder. It has a very stable and loud low register and a range of more than two octaves. It is a pronounced soloist instrument.

So far it has proved to be suitable for playing music from the medieval and renaissance epoch and Nordic folk music.

I build the instruments mainly in boxwood and in three sizes: soprano in c5, alto in g4 and alto in f4, and tuned to A=440 Hz.
