Moeck 4290 Rottenburgh Soprano

Recorder

Like the violin, the classical recorder also dates from the Baroque period. The cultural centres of that period were Paris, London, Amsterdam, Nuremberg and Brussels. The famous recorder maker Friedrich von Huene has examined almost all the remaining originals from this period that are being kept in museums. From the sum of his data, the Moeck Rottenburgh baroque recorders in the style of the instruments by the recorder maker Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh were created.

Characterised by their brilliant pitch and modern tuning, today they are the most frequently played Baroque solo recorders available, and have proven themselves to be an especially reliable instrument.

Excellent recorder at great price
Marcia Rabin , 25.02.2021
The Moeck 4290 is a fantastic maple recorder, which I purchased at an incredible price. I have given the features four stars only because the recorder takes a while to warm up, but once it does it has a really lovely sound. I suspect this is not an issue of design, but rather that the cold humid weather here in the UK does not suit the soft maple wood of which this recorder is made. This said, it is worth persevering with the warm-up each time, because the results are fantastic. The price of this Moeck was unbeatable. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Moeck Sopran
Oranne, 21.10.2009
Gutes Instrument in bewährter Qualität. Die Instrumente der Fa. Moeck - auch die 2-teiligen , sind mittlerweile in hervorragender Weise intoniert.

Selbst bei 5-jährigen Schülern setze ich diese Blockflöte ein, da die meisten auch noch so kleinen Kinder vom Hörerlebnis unterscheiden was gut oder weniger gut klingt.
Da der Windkanal relativ eng ist ,kann man von der ersten Unterrichtsstunde an mit Tonbildung arbeiten und hat dann , wenn die Schüler entsprechend mitarbeiten schon nach 1-2- jahren ein ansprechendes Klangerlebnis.

Selbst wenn die Kinder die Blockflöte nur als Sprungbrett für ein anderes Instrument benutzen , kann man mit diesen Instrumenten schon die Basis für einen lebendigen Klang fundamentieren. Ebenso lässt sich eine breite Fächerung von Artilulation verwirklichen.
Selbst skeptische Eltern lassen sich nach Demonstration ,von der Notwendigkeit eines guten Instruments besonders im jungen Alter, überzeugen.

Un bon rapport qualité prix
Yann Kovic, 25.06.2012
Je me suis mis à la flute soprano en août 2011. Ayant débuté sur une flute achetée... 0.25€ (!) sur une brocante et une autre en plastique (eh oui !), j'y ai pris goût, et un an plus tard, je saute le pas pour m'acheter une flûte digne de ce nom.
Bien sûr, les Rottenburgh sont des flutes d'entrée de gamme, dans la cours des maîtres.
Guitariste de cœur, je fais sans problème le parallèle avec "une bonne guitare pour apprendre" et un instrument de bonne facture.

Je classerai donc cette flute à bec dans les "bons instruments pour apprendre". On tourne ici autour des 100€, et il faut savoir qu'en matière de flutes à bec, la gamme évolue jusqu'aux alentours de 500€.
Rien à voir avec les flutes traversières, où il faut multiplier ce prix par 4 ou 5 pour avoir un bon instrument.

J'ai été ici sévère avec ma cotation, car je découvre cette nouvelle flute qui de surcroit n'est pas encore rodée (une affaire de plusieurs semaines d'après Moeck).

Mais dans l'ensemble, cela sonne ! Rien à voir avec mes flutes "scolaires" à 10 sous.

Bref, si vous voulez débuter sérieusement la flute à bec, allez-y, foncez ! La qualité est là !
