Stephan Blezinger started as an apprentice in 1978 with Conrad Mollenhauer in Fulda, Germany after being with the company less than two years as a shop assistant. He achieved his Master degree as a woodwind instrument maker in 1987, with an emphasis on historical woodwinds. While continuing to work for Mollenhauer, he started his own workshop as a side business in 1988 and continued his dual roles until 1991 when he began operating his own workshop full time. 1996 was a big year for Stephan - he moved his workshop to Eisenach and expanded his capacity and also won the German Music Instrument Prize for his Denner Alto.  If you can read German, here is an Interview in Tibia (1998 in German)

415 European
Boxwood
ThreeDouble English New - Based on an instrument found in Leipzig with no maker's marks. Blezinger thinks it's of Italian origin. I think it's from Nurnberg, probably by Schell, based on the turning. In any case it's the most powerful keyless baroque tenor now being made! The ergonomics are excellent and even players with small hands can get the low C! On top of everything else, the tone is supple and smooth even through the high notes. $2650 SOLD 7/27/2006 to the Gentleman in Genova
