I have just received a grenadilla Mollenhauer Modern Soprano from Lazar for inspection and possible purchase. I currently play the Mollenhauer Modern Also and a Moeck pallisander soprano. Does anyone have any thoughts on the Mollenhauer Modern Soprano. It is a very strong instrument in the lower register (has keys for C#, C and B). To me, it is less “reedy” sounding than the Moeck, which I like. It is pricey.
