Product information "Dolmetsch, "Conservatoire", tenor in c', baroque double hole, grenadilla"
 Dolmetsch Tenor, Grenadilla
Baroque Doublehole, Item: T 8146 G-DOL Natural, 442 Hz

This Tenor recorder with the model number: T 8146 G-DOL manufactured by Dolmetsch is a musical tool, that in making music unfailingly can make happy.
This circumstance is based to a large part on the special merging of the outstanding model in fusion with the sound of the material Grenadilla.

This material creates in the instrument a pleasant sound, by the own unique qualities. The characteristics can best be described: inadequately with words. Therefore the sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person in details slightly varying. We say: Grenadilla: Clear, rich in overtones and powerful sound. Very portable.

The bore

The geometry of the inner bore of the instrument is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore course gives this model its tipically sound.
In principle, models with wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than recorders with narrower inner bore.

For which music can the recorder best be used for?

Grenadilla is particularly for recorders used for: focus on choral playing, recorder ensembles and orchestras, other styles are possible.

To whom is this recorder addressed?

This means that instruments made of Grenadilla are especially for ambitious amateurs and advanced players suitable. A further valid rule is that a valuable instrument makes the interaction naturally pleasant apparently low-cost offer.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the recorder head where the breath is formed into a sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the instruments tone. In interaction with the labium, the air flow is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging stream stimulates the air in the bore. And this is the origin of the recorder tone. This is the reason why the labium must never be damaged. The same rule applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the musical shaping ability of the recorder.

The windway of the recorder T 8146 G-DOL of Dolmetsch has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the voicing is complex in their geometric shaping. Damages here often lead to a total loss!


The model Dolmetsch T 8146 G-DOL is offered in the version: Baroque Doublehole .
