Jean-Luc Boudreau Handmade Alto 'Bressan'

Recorder  a=415

Includes Corps de réchange at a=440 and Leather Case

all in European Boxwood and Artificial Ivory Rings





This is a truly excellent example of Jean-Luc's best work, hand made and numbered (part of his 'Boudreau' line, not the 'Aesthe' line). Jean-Luc is one of the top recorder makers on the planet, and has been creating fully handmade instruments for Canadian, American and European players since 1980.

I obtained the Corps de réchange at a=440 at a later date, but he was able to match the pattern and historical staining of the European Boxwood and artificial ivory surprisingly well (using the original as a template). The Bressan speaks easily, and both 415 and 440 sections reproduce the characteristic 'Bressan' tonality, most notably in the lower range. The joints are threaded on the 415 section and corked on the 440 section.

This Bressan copy is a pleasure to play and is in every way a professional instrument. I primarily play violin, and as such have not played my wind instruments for some time. In the case of the 415 section and head joint, I have played them for approximately 20 hours, gradually playing in the instrument. It has been oiled once, and used only by myself. The 440 section has been played for less than two hours, and is practically new. Every piece in this set has been well taken care of, and as such all are in new condition. Both sections are characterized by stability
