Exceeded expectations.
John in Oz, 09.10.2020
I chose this model because it was an affordable entry into wooden treble recorders, and the castello boxwood was a step up from the softer pearwood. I’m delighted by the brightness and projection of this recorder, and the smoothness in all registers is surprisingly good and very easy to attain. The quality of manufacture and finish is superb, and the wood used in my instrument has a flawless and even grain. Weighing just 200g, it’s easy to hold for long periods without fatigue, and yet the density of the wood is adequate to give a clear tone. All in all I’m very satisfied with the quality, sound and playability of this recorder. Mollenhauer supply a traditional soft padded carry bag which is quite attractive, however I would have preferred a zippered box like those supplied by Moeck or Küng, but that’s a minor issue if you’re careful with your instruments.

The start of something great.
NicholasB, 07.04.2014
I bought this recorder because I was aiming to move up to a better instrument after my first recorder. I am still carefully playing it in but have found the instrument to be really responsive and I love its tone. I look forward to many happy years with it. In addition, Thomann's service was excellent and their staff really helpful.I will use them again.

Excellent for consort and softer solo work
TBD, Boston MA, 20.07.2020
The construction and intonation of this recorder are very nice indeed, and the wood is a nice yellowish boxwood. The full range is easy to obtain right up to the top G and Ab, and you can play higher though it will never be particularly beautiful on any standard baroque recorder. That said, it is a boxwood alto recorder and it's beautiful with harpsichord, lute, guitar, or strings. If you're playing a trio sonata with a louder instrument like a modern oboe, you might want something made of a harder wood so that your sound will project more without the urge to push. But for consorts and solos, it's a beautiful sound and a joy to play.

Einfach nur schön!!
23.03.2016
Auf der Suche nach einer neuen Flöte, habe ich mich online in dieses Modell verguckt und konnte die Lieferung kaum abwarten.
Bereits beim Einspielen hat sich gezeigt, dass diese Flöte einen wunderschönen Klang hat, weich und gleichzeitig kräftig. Von Woche zu Woche werden diese Merkmale immer ausgeprägter und ich kann mich kaum an ihr satt hören.
Das einzige Manko, der Grundton spricht nicht ganz sauber an, da muss noch einmal nachgearbeitet werden, aber das ist wahrscheinlich nur bei meiner Flöte der Fall.
Eine großartige Flöte für einen bezahlbaren Preis.
---
Nachtrag: Inzwischen war die Flöte zur Bearbeitung (Block und Bohrung wurden nachbearbeitet) und die Probleme mit dem Grundton gehören der Vergangenheit an. :-)
Vielen Dank für diesen schnellen und guten Service!
