Ganassi Soprano by von Huene

A wonderful “Ganassi soprano” (see here for the specification of this model on the maker’s website: made by Von Huene. In Maple with two joints at A=440 and A=415. I bought this instrument second-hand through the Early Music Shop Used Instrument Agency in 2011 when it was a few years old, and have enjoyed it very much since then (you can hear a little clip of me playing it on this link: I am selling as over the past 5 years I feel that my instrument needs/preferences have changed, and so am looking to pass this much-loved recorder on and replace it with an instrument that has a little more resistance and ‘chuff’ in the sound. This is a truly excellent instrument that can be played using standard ‘modern’ soprano fingerings and produces a really lovely clear & pure tone at both pitches, making it ideal for all situations.

Hanson and Cousen Treble

This recorder belonged to my late mother, who was an enthusiast for early music. I believe it is a treble recorder made by Hanson and Cousen in about 1980, and I have had one valuation of about £250. I should like it to go where it will be played – as far as I am aware it is in good condition. My email is alexatramsaydotnet (01544 267461).

Mollenhauer Alto in Grenadilla
hand made Morgan Edition (After Jacob Denner)
This beautiful instrument at 442Hz, was purchased around three years ago from The Early Music Shop for £1125.95. The tags (and receipt if required) are still with the instrument. This instrument has only been played a handful of times, and so is in new condition. It has been oiled seasonally. There is no sign of wear or damage.
The tone is clear and rich. The grenadilla has a flute like sweetness and clarity to the sound. The bottom notes in particular are forceful and well pitched. Top Fs and Gs speak clearly and easily. This recorder is perfect for advanced solo work and speaks well within a consort too.
The marks of quality for this instrument include the bushed thumbhole, the threaded joints and number 234 on the centre piece. It comes in the luxury leather Mollenhauer pouch bag. Original accessories are included.
Price: £795 ono.

Ganassi Alto

Ganassi Alto in G
made by Joachim Rohmer. It’s in both 440 and 466Hz. The wood is Palissandre. This is a very good instrument, but I don’t really play the soloist repertoire of the 16th century… You can hear the instrument at, in “extraits sonores”‘s video after 2.06 minutes.
Price: I bought this recorder in 2011 for 1500€. I am selling it for 1000€.
