Lovely sweet instrument
TBD, Boston MA, 20.07.2020
I've played on Mollenhauer "Dream" recorders for almost fifteen years now, and decided that I wanted a soprano with a more refined sound for a concert I was giving back in December. Compared to the pearwood version, this instrument has a much smoother, sweeter sound with a fairly good response. The top few notes require more finesse and precision from the player (they don't just "pop out" like they do on a baroque instrument) but unlike a Renaissance replica recorder, they do come out with attention and practice. The only caution I would give is that if you're trying to be a soloist with more than a couple of quiet instruments, you might want a more assertive sound; I played with guitar and harpsichord and it worked very well. Perfect for consort work though!

Likeable
ABL7, 26.07.2017
I like this recorder. It has a different sound to, for example, a moeck rottenburgh. The tone has softer more rounded "edges" but still retains focus and a bit of bite and edge unlike, for example, a maple renaissance or ganassi recorder.

Volume is good. Intonation is good. I can produce an in tune top C# with an adjusted fingering and a little effort. I like the way it has been voiced, the windway is not so curved and narrow as on the alto which sounds more or less just like another baroque recorder and has weak low notes like a baroque recorder. This descant (soprano) still isn't incredibly loud but it does have good volume and I just find it a very likeable instrument and would recommend this but not the alto due to the shape of the windway and the way Mollenhauer chose to voice it.

Great intermediate/beginner transitional style instrument

The dreams series is great if you want to have the overall renaissance blend of a wide bore instrument, but still want to responsiveness of a baroque or modern instrument.
