Family: Solo Hans Coolsma designed his famous Solo recorders in co-operation with well-known players such as Frans Bruggen and Walter van Hauwe. These Dutch instruments are used worldwide by accomplished amateurs and professionals. They are made with the extensive hand fitting, voicing and tuning that demanding players require. Coolsma Solo recorders have a strong round sound with a range of two and a half octaves, making them excellent solo instruments.
