I.H. ROTTENBURGH 415 (~1730)

jhrottenburgh 415

I was lucky to have had the opportunity of restoring this flute
which was initially in Paris but is now in Tokyo.
A very beautiful instrument possessing a sonority which is both clear and subtle with a solidity in the bass
 and an agility in the higher register.
               The original is pitched in 405 Hz. but I have been able to modify it whilst retaining all of its                     qualities relating to intonation and precision so as to produce a copy in the more workable pitch of 415 Hz.

The original was made in boxwood but grenadilla can give it a tone which proves to be just as attractive.


engraved key as the original.
