Fantasic sound and awarded design! It is the ideal combination of wood and plastic. Prima is the first choice for everyone who wants a good playability and a warm wooden sound. This instrument established a new generation of recorders in 1994, as it was awarded with the iF-Design-Prize. This recorder is ideal to start with, as it is robust and insensitive. The head-piece which is quite sensitive to dampness can be washed out with warm water. Prima recorders are also ideal practicing instruments, as they are very resistant. If you want to give your expensive orchestra recorder a break, but don´t want to do without the high sound quality, then the Prima 1053 is the perfect alternative.
Mollenhauer - the breath is the soul! The story of the trademark Mollenhauer begins with a cultural impulse from Johann Andreas Mollenhauer in 1822 and blows as "the breath of soul" throughout centuries right up to today. Looking back at the development of the past generations of the company Mollenhauer, a lot of outstanding results and successes can be seen.
The 2002 slogan "Fun & Flute" mirrors exactly what Mollenhauer´s recorders stand for. It becomes clear that today - 180 years later - Mollenhauer enthusiasm still hasn´t died down...you´ll get stung by it!
