In 1966 the renowned recorder maker Friedrich von Huene (Boston, USA) had the chance to play and examine nearly all the original recorders kept in European museums. His work resulted in the basic model of the Moeck-Rottenburgh baroque recorders in modern tuning built after the instruments made by Jean-Hyacinth-Joseph Rottenburgh (Brussels, 1672-1756). These instruments are true all-rounders and they remain reliable and easy to play also after extensive use.
