I am a serious recorder player and anyone who plays this instrument knows of the weakness in the lower notes.

The 5920 is not cheap but as a player you learn to appreciate the craftmanship necessary for making top class instruments. I tried this recorder out in a large UK shop and was amazed at the volume at the bottom end. It is worth having. Of course they charge too much in the UK .

The keywork is top class, equal to the keywork on my top class clarinets and Yanagisawa saxophones .

I shall be using this on gigs very soon, not on every tune we play, but especially those with lots of bottom notes. I have an Aura Alto recorder in grenadila which is superb at the top end. Maybe the grenadila version of this recorder would be a worthwhile investment. I have a Mollenhauer comfort tenor which is also good at the bottom end and is rosewood. This gives a nice tone so I went for a rosewood
5920. I also chose the E foot because I suspected that this would make the bottom F even louder and clearer. I think this will be used much in the next few years.
Highly recommended!!

The sound produced by this recorder is amazing. I have only just started to 'play it in' but it is immediately responsive through the whole range. Compared with my other 2 good-quality alto recorders the main differences are:
- the e-foot (nice, but a bit of a novelty)
- the ability to produce a true note at very low and very high volume, i.e. through a big range of air pressures.
- a 'ringing' quality to the notes which is delightful.
I wish my playing would improve to the standard of the instrument! It also looks beautiful in the rosewood

Not a professional option

The overall voicing of the instrument is quite poor and it lacks flexibility. Low register seems ok at first but do not expect to get a strong low g sharp / a flat. I expected to get a powerful instrument but middle and high registers are quite poor and less flexible than in other Mollenahuer recorders like the Denner model. The 3rd octave fingerings are quite intricate and not very practical if you have to be fast.
There are far better options for non historical versions of an alto for much less money: Mollenhauer Dream edition allows for high f sharp without the use of the knee to cover the bell hole for a far better price.
