Descant Shawm

Copy of German Renaissance Shawm.

Pitch a’=440Hz.
For special requests I can make it in other pitch.
Usually I make the instrument from maple or sycamore wood but also from pear or cherry wood.
This shawm is quite easy to play. Good intonation.
Original there is in private collection.
