A great instrument!
endot, 30.03.2018
The modern Mollenhauer soprano recorder has its price but is worth every euro. Excellent response to all sounds from the lowest to the highest tone right away, clean atmosphere, great sound (but clearly different from a recorder in Baroque style), decent volume. With a modern recorder by Mollenhauer you can really keep up with other modern instruments in this ensemble, based on your own experience. The function of the flaps for h / c / cis is excellent; They are also great to grip with big hands. There are no faint low notes in this recorder, as we know it from baroque instruments. Everyone comes equally strong.
Conclusion: I can highly recommend the modern soprano recorder (as well as the corresponding treble recorder with e-foot or the modern alto recorder in g), especially if you want to play a repertoire also off the baroque music.

Design failures
31.05.2015
The design of the keys is totally disproportionate to the size of the instrument and prevents comfortable handling of the bass notes of the flute, in fact makes them practically impractical at a certain speed. The proximity of the key of do with the sharp one is also very uncomfortable but the main defect is that the keys invade the space of the end of the body of the instrument hindering the movement of the fingers. It is incomprehensible that these keys have the same size as in the similar high-end model.

The notes on sharp from the sustained do are achieved with fingerings too intricate and fail to provide a practical solution. It is more advisable to use a Baroque soprano (or a Mollenhauer Dream model) by plugging the bell hole.

The voicing is poor in sound quality and compared to other Mollenhauer models like the soprano Adris Dream is remarkable its inferiority in both the volume and the flexibility of the timbre.

The extension of the natural si would be the only advantage of this instrument over others but its price and the general quality throw an unacceptable balance for any professional. I do not recommend their acquisition.
