Vintage FEHR ALTO RECORDER
This is a H.C.FEHR <original Model II> Pear wood Alto Recorder in f' with baroque (English)fingering and pitched at a'=440. It comes in three pieces and measures 18.5 inches (47.2cm) when assembled.
The warm honey-colored and vividly shaded grain of the pear wood comes to life with its polished finish. Other than a minor dent at the thumbhole (see 2nd picture) the instrument is in excellent condition. It was played once a week in a recorder consort for about 15 years and during the following eight years rested securely in a suitcase.
FEHR recorders are known for their sweet, warm tone and for a high register that is especially easy to play. These instruments are particularly well suited for playing in groups or with other instruments.
For 50 years Switzerland has been the home of FEHR recorders. These instruments are well known to rank among the top recorders build in Europe.
Please feel free to ask any question you may have.
Thank You for your interest!
The instrument will be shipped freshly oiled and insured!

It was brought to my attention that the measurements for the alto recorder were wrong: This Alto Recorder is 18.5 inches (46,8 cm) long. 24.5 inches would indeed be a Tenor Recorder.
