Jan Steenbergen came from Heerde in Gelderland.
A pupil of Richard Haka, his production consisted largely of recorders and oboes. Steenbergen lived and worked in Kerkstraat in Amsterdam until about 1730. A number of his recorders, traversi and oboes have survived.
Amongst the 8 or 9 surviving recorders by Steenbergen, one has three double holes (f'/f#' g'/g#', c''/c#''), which allows you to play a very stable and well tuned c#'''.
