Ganassi-type alto recorder in g by the Morgan workshop, finished by Ernst Meyer

  • Model: Ganassi
  • Pitch: two bodies in 466 Hz (one by Morgan, one by Meyer) plus one 440 Hz body by the Morgan workshop
  • Wood: maple
  • Price: 6000 € (negotiable)
  • Current state: powerful instrument, almost like new

Editor’s note: Just to avoid confusion—this is not a recorder made by Fred Morgan himself, since it was made after Fred died: it’s marked with a little stamp of the sun [☼] which shows this instrument was made after Fred’s passing. Therefore, it was originally a recorder body (or blank) made at the Morgan workshop by Fred’s turner (which means: using original Morgan tools and measurements) that was later finished (tuned and voiced) by Ernst Meyer.
