Starting-point for all the recorders I make is a selection from the finest end very good historical instruments combined with the technical and musical demands of modern professional recorder players. I try to keep the characteristics of the originals as good as I can and I try to combine this with as good as possible playing characteristics like intonation, speaking, stability and flexibility.
I make renaissance recorders ('Ganassi' type and consort instruments) and several types of baroque recorders.
For my instruments I use carefully selected and well seasoned wood. For my baroque instruments I mainly use European boxwood (of which most originals are made) and for extra stability also rosewood and grenadilla wood. For my renaissance instruments I mainly use maple wood.
