Crone Traverso 440 Hz

round 1780

Johann August Crone (Leipzig, 1727 – 1804) took over his father's workshop after his father died. The workshop was substantial, employing 30 workers and 10 to 12 apprentices. The diversity in appearance of Crone’s instruments is a result of the size of his workshop.

The original of this flute is kept in Berlin. It has remarkable proportions on the original for a 440 Hz reduction.
