Notes Seller's Notes: French recorder (Flute de quatre), fingering of Hotteterre, perhaps it was built by Bressan (circa 1670/1680), Bb 415, perfect conditions, Macassarian ebony, amazing sound, length 375 mm. this flute was found in Australia! The block has been redone by Paolo Sopranzi, a builder and flute expert who has been able to observe and measure all my Flute collection for a long time and who has verified its originality, the original block, however, I have it and I must say that it sounds better with the original block !! You can come to Bologna to see and try the instrument without problems! The link to listen to a short sound example:
