Mollenhauer 1295 Prima Alto Recorder

Alto Recorder

For those who are longing for the warm woody sound of a traditional recorder, yet appreciate the lasting playability of a plastic model, then the PRIMA is the model of choice for you. This recorder model was established back in 1994 and has since then earned its place as one of the top-rated recorders of the world.

  • Extremely consistent playability thanks to the use of high-quality special plastic for the production of the head joint
  • Produces a warm sound thanks to the pearwood wood - Over 80% of the resonance takes place at the wooden surface of the inner bore
  • Very hygienic - The head joint can be easily cleaned with water as it is produced using chlorine-free ABS plastic
  • The design is the result of an intensive collaboration with recorder teachers: A pedagogical design, which is both contemporary and functional
  • Baroque fingering
  • Double toneholes
  • Head is made from plastic
  • Body is made from pearwood
  • Includes a cotton bag with cleaning swab, joint grease and fingering chart with care instructions
  • Colour: Beige

Mollenhauer prima alto
Paullimerick, 24.07.2013
This is a beautiful beginners instrument. The plastic top wont swell with spit and can be easily cleaned. The sound from the wood body is deep and sonorous. Visually this instrument appeals to me. Being an alto recorder (deeper than the soprano) the sound is particularly appealing and much professional music is available for this instrument. Comes in a case, with grease to oil the cork, and a cleaning utensil. well priced, response, and attractive.

Wow
mood747, 23.06.2020
This is a really nice choice and as far as I know the only hybrid of a plastic head with a wooden body in the alto range. The sound is definitely better than the full plastic instruments. So this is great for players who just play occasionally and do not want to go through the procedure of playing the instrument in. Definitely very nice - I wish there was a tenor like this too!

True to itself
11.12.2016
Since the 18th century, recorder-making is largely a matter of imitation, with a few notable exceptions. The Mollenhauer Prima Alto is a.new, modern, creation that is true to itself in every way.

The sound is simply gorgeous. Sometimes I will repeat a motive or hold a note just to delight in the rich woody tones it makes. It is said that King Henry VIII owned 72 recorders. I suspect he would trade half of his collection away to get his hands one one of these modern beauties if he could.

Of all the recorders in my collection this is the one I reach for the most on any given day.

Très bonne surprise
Yves-Marie, 13.08.2012
Même constat que pour le modèle soprano : Excellent instrument d'appoint en complément de ma collection de flûte en bois. L'une des meilleures flûtes d'étude que j'ai eu entre les mains, malgré son design déroutant. Le son est satisfaisant sur les deux octaves, enrichi par un corps en poirier et une tête en résine dense et solide, très bien étudiée : Moins de condensation que sur d'autres instruments en plastique. Modèle nécessitant peu ou pas d'entretien. J'aime beaucoup! Dommage qu'elle ne soit pas déclinée en tenor et basse.

Despite its infamous classroom or beginner’s image, the recorder is in fact just as difficult to play well as most other instruments.
