The Company Moeck
Since several centuries the name Moeck has represented perfect recorders. Hermann Moeck sen. has been distributing recorders which are manufactured in his home workshop in Saxon Vogtland since 1930. The intoantion and tuning were done by him personally. Alongside recorders he distributed violas, clavichords and spinettes which were partially manufactured in his workshop, too. During the 60s the intrest for historically authentic instruments arose. To meet with this demand Moeck developed a new programm: the reconstruction of wood-wind-instruments from the renaissance and baroque eras. This programm has been extended and accompanied by academics til this day and consists of crumhorns, kortholts, shawms and bombards, dulcians, beaks, oboes, bassoons etc. Yet, the central focus of instrument building was put on the recorder.
Due to continual development and the permanent adjustment of the instruments to the needs of the musicians the brand has become a guarantee for good quality. Today Moeck uses the newest computer based technologies to build instruments, but still the amount of hand-made instruments is very high. Moeck has managed to combine his craftmanship with modern technology and built several instruments with a very high quality standard. Moeck offers the perfect instrument for beginners and professionals.

The use of wood-finished beginners flutes makes sense even in times when plastic replaces the traditional materials in many areas. The wood-made instruments, by means of their round and balanced sound character, shape the musical hearing very well. That is why Moeck's first-class models from the series "Schulflöte" (School recorders)(formerly Schulblockflöte) still belong to the most sold wind instruments at all.
The individual components of the school recorder are produced with great care and precision by Moeck. It is precisely during the fitting of the labium and the milling of the wind tunnel that an accurate production is essential since the block is decisive for the sound and the playing characteristics. For the exact intonation the bore of the individual tone holes is decisive. In order to achieve such high craftsmanship, Moeck relies on experienced professionals with many years of experience.
This makes the Moeck school flute a great instrument for discerning students who are looking for a reliable recorder for the next years.
