A PEARWOOD F BASS RECORDER FROM ADLER (MARKNEUKIRCHEN), MADE ABOUT 1960,.
Ted and Alice Mix, owners of the Magnamusic Distributor firm in New England, were the USA agents for Moeck, for Adler, Neupert harpsichords and a dozen or more music publishers. We bought quite a lot of items from them, decades ago.
The Adlers were their ''basic'' line. Before Friedrich von Huene came up with the excellent designs for the Moeck Rottenburgh series, the Adler instruments actually sold very well for the Mixes.
And so we have today a used Adler bass recorder that's nearly fifty years old. It's in fine original condition, purchased by a fine fellow whom we knew for half a century. We're selling it on behalf of the estate.
The basic design, as the photos show, is a direct-blow instrument (no bocal, we mean...) with the head section turned upward at a 135 degree angle. ''Knickbass'' is what Adler called them.
So that means it should play pretty well and since it was never an expensive item, it's on EBay today with a low low starting price.
But there are a couple of caveats
