Notes: The two Vogtland companies Johannes Adler and Alexander Heinrich merged prior to the dismemberment of the DDR. However, in 2006 they closed the business due to insolvency. Some of their designs continued to be made by Ulrich Hahl who has set up an independent workshop of his own which in turn also closed, in 2008.
The Adler-Heinrich bell recorders designed by Klaus Grunwald were similar in appearance to renaissance recorders, with a wide, largely cylindrical bore, a simple external profile and large single tone holes with a raised tone-hole for the lowest finger. But their most striking feature was their large, flared, wooden or metal bell. Thus they differed radically from traditional designs. These instruments are said to produce an extremely loud, full sound from bottom to top, and offer a wide variety of alternate fingerings which permit dynamic variation. They permitted a much greater range of breath pressures than traditional instruments, and a remarkable variety of articulations was also possible, allowing them to compete successfully with loud modern instruments such as piano, saxophone, or brass. Soprano and alto models were produced, but there were plans to produce all sizes from sopranino to great bass in a variety of woods. These instruments are sometimes offered for sale on eBay.

Maker: Heinz Ammann Country: Switzerland Address_1: Schönenwerdweg 10, CH-8832 Wollerau Telephone: +41 1687 2496 Fax: +41 1784 9728 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web_Page: http://www.heinz-ammann.ch/ Instruments: Ganassi-style recorders; baroque recorders after Aardenberg, Boekhout, Bressan, Haka, Heerde, Jacob Denner, Rottenburgh, Schell, Stanesby Sr, Stanesby Jr, Reich, Terton.

Maker: Giacomo Andreola Country: Italy Address_1: Via 4 Novembre 51, 23100 Sondrio Telephone: +39 0342 214739 Fax: +39 0342 214739 Email: email@example.com Instruments: Van Eyck (transitional) recorders; alto baroque recorders after Bressan, Denner, Stanesby and Steenbergen (at 415 / 440 Hz); voice flute after Bressan & Denner (at 415 Hz). Notes: The instruments are built with a lot of passion and great attention to detail. They are notable for their refined appearance (other than boxwood, ebony and amboina-briar wood is used for elegant contrast). The homogenity of their sound tends to a lovely dark colour, rich in harmonics, precise in pitch, and with easy response in every register.
Andreola also offers recorders with a specially constructed beak (copied from a brilliant idea of the famous recorder maker Claude Monin) which allows one to change the windway as needed, offering many advantages:
— reasonably low cost; it is as though you have a new instrument, since voicing influences so many aspects of the instrument
— the second windway can be used for practice, keeping the first for special occasions
— if for reasons of temperature or humidity the recorder risks blockage, which also risks the outcome of a piece being played during a concert, a quick change of the windway solves the problem
— in case of breakage, the substitution of the windway is less costly than that of the whole head joint.
For those not interested in the two windways, after the first 5/6 months of 'playing in', when the instrument is serviced (free of charge), the windway will be fixed permanently with a special glue which is waterproof and heatproof.
Each instrument is accompanied with a full guide to usage (warming up, oiling, etc.) and a two-year guarantee. Delivery time is from two to four months. The price list will be a delightful surprise, especially for students.
