News :  Palanca type Embouchure


Delusse and Hotteterre resine flutes are now available with the "oval embouchure" option. This later mouthpiece, more elongated, similar ton thus of Palanca flutes , is larger and easier to play. Less authentic than the original version, it will allow however different musical possibilities on a later repertoire.

The nice resin Rottenburgh had came yesterday. It plays very excellent with rich sound and speaks both notes with very ease. It is the best traverso I have. Thank you for your work and sell such a nice flute.

Le 18-04-2011, Serge S. a écrit :
Je trouve que ce que tu fais est formidable…Pouvoir donner l’accès du traverso au plus grand nombre de jeunes et (moins jeunes) flutistes est pour moi la clé de ce pourquoi l’on se bat avec notre fameuse »musique ancienne ».
Tes traversos en résine sont de bons instruments et je vais encore jouer celui que j’ai acheté.

The 10-05-2011, Satoshi T. wrote :
Really your resin flute has good tuning, and sonority and facility, further the resin flute is friendly for me and tender for people who is not financially fit.

The 15-05-2011, André F. wrote :
I’m liking more and more the sound of my resin traverso. I wanted something robust that did not have any particular care, and would allow me to develop before I jump to a wooden instrument. And I already knew that the sound should be good, comparing quite well to wood.
So far I’m quite happy with the Rottenburgh. Thank you very much.

I played my flute with other musicians for the first time last night, and received enthusiastic comments about the tone quality. I am thrilled at how well it plays ! I appreciate that it holds its timbre well when I adjust my embouchure to bring notes such as F and F# into tune.

The sound with the ebony resin is more clear than the white one’s and the balance of tone is good also, but a litlle delicate and less robust than the white.

Je viens d’acquérir un traverso résine 415 Hz couleur ébène.
L’instrument et sa housse de bonne qualité sont arrivés au Japon plus tôt que prévu et sans problème. Même si c’est un traverso en résine, la sonorité est excellente. Un peu lourd en main, il procure une sensation agréable.
Je vous recommande ce facteur à la correspondance et au service excellents.

Ma flûte résine ivoire est arrivée et je suis très heureux avec elle.
Le son est riche et sonore et capable de la réactivité la plus subtile.
La joie, c’est que je peux jouer pendant des heures sans se soucier que mon instrument va se désintégrer. Il est même possible que ce sera moi qui nécessitera des réparations dans un premier temps…..

I am just writing to let you know that I have had a great time playing the instrument I bought from you last year. This past week I performed with the Boulder Bach Festival in St.John’s Passion, in which I had the opportunity to play with the world renowned American traverso player Colin St-Martin.
Your flute was a tremendous success. Everyone in the ensemble loved the tone I made with your instrument, and many could not believe it was not a wood instrument !
I think this was the perfect choice for a place with such extreme weather as Colorado because I don’t have to worry about the care for the wood, but I can still get the warm tone and crisp articulation of a wooden traverso. Thanks for the work you’re doing.

This Hotteterre 415 is fantastic……speaks easily and is sweet but with volume. Have played several outdoor events with no anxiety!  A number of people have asked me where I got the flute so I hope you have more commissions from my part of the world.  You are a great artist. Thank you.

Que dire…Elle est magnifique et donne des sons d’une grande beauté.
Le passage flûte boehm / traverso baroque est plus rude que je ne le pensais mais c’est un très grand plaisir de redécouvrir l’instrument d’origine. Merci beaucoup.

Ma Rottenburgh 415 en résine arriva intacte au Canada. 
Je la trouve très bien construite et produit un son comparable aux flûtes baroques traditionnelles. Qualité-prix exceptionnelle selon mon professeur de flûte pour des apprentis comme moi. Grand merci pour l’envoi rapide et pour la table de doigtés. Je recommanderai vos œuvres d’art ! Continuez votre travail de faciliter la musique sur des instruments baroques! Grand merci d’un cousin du Québec !

The Delusse 440 ivory resin arrived safely. Your website description is absolutely correct about the ease with which the notes of the 3rd octave can be produced. One surprise to me is how flexible the instrument is, permitting a considerable range in volume. I will not hesitate to use this instrument professionally in circumstances requiring modern pitch. Many thanks!
