Jacob Denner (1681–1735) was a woodwind instrument maker of Nuremberg.

He was the son of Johann Christoph Denner, improver of the chalumeau and inventor of the clarinet. Jacob is also well known for his recorders[1] which have become the model for many modern instruments.[2] He is reported to have worked for the Medecis court in Florence in 1708.[3]

Jacob was also a performer and member of the Nuremberg Stadtpfeiferei.[4]
