A Good Treble Recorder
TRM , 04.02.2020
The Denner Edition definitely performs better than the standard-issue Mollenhauer Denner instruments.

The response and pitch are very good. The tone can be a little thin and the volume is likewise a bit weak. I hope a re-voicing will improve this, as the recorder is otherwise very fine.

Overall: a high-quality instrument!

Wonderful instrument
Recorder Phil, 22.06.2019
This is a hand finished version of the Mollenhauer Denner series. Having both I can say that while the standard Denner is good, this recorder is in a different league. The tone, agility, ease of reaching top notes and reliability over the whole range are excellent. The satinwood is light in the hand and looks great. It’s a big investment but justified by the quality .

Kaufempfehlung
04.12.2015
Wer unter der Vielzahl guter Instrumente eine Entscheidung treffen soll, hat es nicht leicht. Die Beschreibungen sind oft umfänglich, einen direkten Vergleich der Modelle gibt es kaum. Die Hörproben sind abhängig vom Wiedergabegerät und lassen Unterschiede nicht wirklich erkennen. Bleibt das Holz und das individuelle Gefühl.
Satinwood hat eine sehr feine Maserung, wirkt zurückhaltend, Rotton fehlt im Vergleich z. B. mit Olivenholz, das viel auffallender gezeichnet ist. Mein Modell hat auf der Rückseite eine Linie in der Maserung, die man sogar etwas unschön nennen könnte, aber Holz ist eben etwas Lebendiges. Den Klang beeinträchtigt das nicht. Der ist klar, hell. Leicht "näselnd", recht speziell. Die Ansprache doch nicht so leicht wie beschrieben, aber das mag an mir oder der noch nicht abgeschlossenen Einspielung liegen.
Der Schnabel ist sehr schmal, 2mm schmaler als bei anderen Modellen. Das ist angenehm und verleiht dem Instrument etwas Schlankes. Das Kopfstück passt nicht hundertprozentig auf den Rumpf, es bleibt ein kleiner Spalt. Man könnte das nachbessern. Die Firma Mollenhauer ist da sehr schnell. Im Übrigen alles akkurat, die Zapfenwicklung sehr sauber. Das Lederetui passt zur Wertigkeit des Instrumentes, ein Pflegeset gehört leider nicht zum Lieferumfang.
Wer sich etwas Edles leisten möchte, wird von dieser Flöte bestimmt nicht enttäuscht. Für den kleineren Geldbeutel wäre die Denner 5223 beispielsweise eine sehr gute Alternative. Der Klangunterschied ist - zumindest in der Einspielphase - tatsächlich minimal. Olivenholz klingt in den tiefen Tönen weich und voll. Letztlich Geschmacksache. Satinwood klingt heller. Bei der 5223 allerdings ist das Etui nur aus Stoff.

Sehr zufrieden
Üdeltüdel, 14.02.2020
Ich nutze meine Altflöte im ambitionierten Hobbybereich. Was mich insbesondere begeistert ist die hervorragende Ansprache in den hohen Lagen. Ich spiele sie nun seit zwei Jahren und sie spielt noch wie am ersten Tag. Zudem wird sie NIE heiser, weder anfangs noch nach langem Spielen, der Ton kommt IMMER klar. Viele andere Flöten verhalten sich wie eine Diva und wollen ständig umsorgt sein, meine spielt einfach,das ist wunderbar. Verarbeitung gibt es nur vier Sterne, weil sich nun die Fadenwicklung etwas löst. Fazit: Eine stets einsetzbare Flöte, sowohl für Ensemble als auch für das Solospiel

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