Tenor Recorders

Tenor recorders are in C and use the same fingering as the soprano, but sound an octave lower. Tenor recorders are used as solo instruments and are also very important in ensembles, providing a deeper sound.

 

Tenors are longer than altos, and some are fitted with keys for the lower notes to assist those with smaller hands. Some, called Knick Tenors, have a bend in the instrument that also assists players of smaller stature to reach all the holes/keys.

 

We are able to offer the following ranges of tenor recorders:

‚Äč

Kung Studio

Moeck Flauto Rondo

Moeck Rottenburgh

Kung Superio

Kung Marsyas

Mollenhauer Renaissance
