 Moeck F-Bass, Maple
Baroque Doublehole, Item: 4540-MOE Natural, 442 Hz

This F-Bass recorder with the model number: 4540-MOE manufactured by Moeck is a musical tool, that in lessons, or performing repeatedly will make joy.
This circumstance is based to a large part on the special marriage of the genius composition in fusion with the advantages of the material Maple.

The material makes this instrument a strikingly pleasant characteristic, by its extraordinary preferences. The qualities can described in the following words, whereas it is in the nature of things that sounds can always be described very inadequately with words. Therefore the sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person in details varying. We say: Maple: Warm and clear, slightly thinner than pearwood

The bore

The geometry of the inner bore of the instrument is light cylindroconical and narrower on average. This kind of bore course gives the recorder such a special tone.
In principle, instruments with wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than models with narrower inner bore.

For what styles can this instrument be used for?

Maple is particularly for instruments used for: Ensemble, choral and solo performance.

To whom is this musical instrument addressed?

From this it results that recorders made of Maple are especially for ambitious amateurs and advanced players suitable. A further to be heeded law is that a better instrument makes the learning progress as uncomplicated than a inferior low-cost bargain.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the instrument headpiece where the blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the sound of the recorder. At the labium, the air stream is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging flow stimulates the air in the bore. This is the origin of the recorder sound. This is the reason why the labium must not be damaged in any case. The same rule applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the influenceability of the available sounds of the recorder.

The windway of the model 4540-MOE of Moeck has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical windways accelerate breathing air more than cylindrical shaped windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the instrument is very complex in their design. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!


The recorder Moeck 4540-MOE is delivered in the following version: Baroque Doublehole .


The constructional design in terms of multipartness a musical instrument shapes basically the way with which the flute in use on the one hand is simple to handle in terms of easy gripping and on the other hand for the compact transport.
This is a point that should not be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes multiple) instruments.
