Over 30 years ago, and in collaboration with teachers from Waldorf schools, we developed a revolutionary instrument system: The Combination recorders.
The instruments are characterised by the following prinicples: 

  • With detachable sound strips, the pentatonic instruments are probably the quietest recorders in the classroom. 
  • Practical construction
  • Sensible pricing for parent-school finances
  • 5 year guarantee

The instruments are developed within an interchangeable system. 
There is one head joint and various lower pieces.

The golden rule: The head joint fits all lower pieces, no matter the tuning or fingering.

By retaining the head joint and switching the lower piece, creating a new instrument is always easy.
Since the head joint is the most expensive part of the recorder, changing your instrument is now cheaper than ever before. Purchasing just a lower piece relieves the burden on your finances. The head, which also becomes personalised during use, remains within your instrument. 
And after the change, the penatatonic lower piece that is no longer needed can be passed onto a sibling or sold to another class.

School classes who want to start with the pentatonic range and then later switch to the diatonic / chromatic range at a reasonable price.The favorable change is made possible by the system of combination recorders.The wind tunnel of the recorder The windway is the area in the headjoint of the recorder where the air is formed into a sheet of air. This air blade is the nucleus of the instrument's sound. In interaction with the labium, the air blade creates the vibration that generates the flute sound. The shape of the windway is therefore one of the defining principles for the response and sound of the flute.The 50080 model has a straight and cylindrically shaped windway.The volume of the instrument can be reduced with a sound strip (optional accessory) if required. Fingering The instrument pentatonic stars-recorder 50080 is made in the 7-tone pentatonic fingeringMulti-part design The pentatonic star flute 50080 is in two parts.This concept - and the special design features of the star flutes - make it possible to use them as a "combination recorder".
