I purchased a Mollenhauer Denner rosewood soprano – but haven’t received it yet (it’s coming from the UK). I asked about the block because I want to be prepared! Also waiting on three altos I ordered on assignment from Lazar’s to try: Mollenhauer Denner pearwood, a tulipwood, and also a modern Mollenhauer alto (for kicks). I’ll see how that Denner pearwood sounds, especially given your experience with it….!
