This recorder is made of European Boxwood with 2 art. Ivory mounts, making it exquisite. JEAN-LUC BOUDREAU has been making recorders since 1980, after having studied science and music. His main interest is the development of instruments inspired by early recorders found in various collections. His handmade concert recorders are classified into two families, Baroque and Renaissance, and allow all repertoire written for the recorder to be explored. Aesthé recorders are the result of the demand for affordable high quality instruments. They are totally produced in Jean-Luc's workshop with the distinction of being finished and tested according to the standards of high-end Boudreau recorders. It comes with a fleece- lined 3 sleeve Cordura case. Handmade in Canada, this is truly a beautiful instrument.
