J. Steenbergen, Alto, F
Additional charge for imitation ivory mounts
Jan Steenbergen (1676 – 1752) worked in the first half of the 18th century in Amsterdam as a manufacturer of woodwind instruments, especially oboes and recorders. A very beautifully crafted and well-preserved recorder can be found in the collection of F. Bruggen, who also used it on his recordings.
Our handmade reproduction has been constructed at the modern pitch of A442, while preserving many sound and playing characteristics of the original. We build the Steenbergen recorder in Maracaibo or plumwood. We offer these woods as reasonably priced alternatives. In addition, we manufacture instruments in European boxwood as well as in grenadilla with ivory-coloured mounts if specially requested for an additional charge.
