Early recorders (in plumwood)
Mediaeval Recorders (windcap and foot in boxwood) Still available for much of the time.
Early Renaissance Recorders (with beek). Unavailable at present.
Constructed after a wide ranging study of the extant and pictorial evidence for these instruments. These recorders predate the Renaissance consort instruments. They are rather loud, extrovert, vibrant and exciting when played with energy. The range is one octave and a sixth.
