E.Terton soprano in C at 440 and 415 Hz

Engelbert Terton was Born in Rijssen 1n 1676. He came to Amsterdam before 1710 when he was granted citizenship as instrument maker. He was probably a pupil of Jan van Heerde and was amongst the leading wind-instrument makers in Europe. The soprano recorder nowadays most copied by makers is, without doubt, the instrument belonging to the Collection of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. It is in two sections, finely executed with silver fittings at the bottom of the head and at the foot joints. The playing condition of this original instrument is excellent, stable at the bottom and easily speaking in all registers.

Our copy, made in two versions with pitch 440 and 415, follow exactly the structural features of the original.
