This inexpensive 13-inch recorder has surprisingly good sound quality. The cream-colored, plastic instrument easily disassembles into three parts and comes with a canvas carrying bag, simple instructions, and a fingering sheet. --Richard Farr

My son loves music.

And I very much recommend this for others if you want a high quality sounding reorder like this one.

I'm hoping this will spur them to learn how to play musical instruments later in life.

I have a more expensive plastic Yamaha recorder at home, but this is the one we are using in an adult "advanced beginners" class. The sound is decent for a plastic recorder. This one is in the trunk of my car and is just taken out once a week for the class. It doesn't clog very easily (something that seems more likely when you've been playing a good wooden one for awhile.) This is a good choice for a beginner recorder. And when I've heard it played by our instructor, the tone is really quite good. Instead of the $2 one piece recorders, splurge :-). Being an acoustic guitar player who has to always be concerned about things like humidity, temperature and having to take great care with an instrument, this is great. Nothing is going to damage it, doesn't take up much space, and you can make music with it. Seriously, this sounds as good as some plastic ones I've heard that cost $15-$30 dollars. The 4 star rating is based on comparably priced plastic recorders, and not the more expensive wooden ones.

I bought this recorder for a friend as a gift to replace a cheaper one. It sounds so good that I bought another one for me, and another one for my son, just to start learning music. As I said, excellent recorder for the price.

I purchased these recorders to teach to my second graders. In the past when I taught third grade, these same recorders were used for them. They are good quality for the students.

This was bought for a 4th grade student for music class at school. It has a good sound and is sturdy enough to survive the daily trip to school in a 9 year old boys backpack.

Bought this for my 4th grader since they are playing recorders at school. It's been toted back and forth in his backpack with no problem. Came with a great little fabric bag to keep it clean.

I purchased two of these recorders--one for each of my children (ages 5 and 7), who are interested in learning to read music and play the recorder.

Of course, I gave them a try myself to check the quality of the instrument, and was quite pleased with them. The tone is quite good for such an inexpensive recorder. The higher register (above E5) becomes slightly squeaky, but the lowest notes are true with no tendency to jump the octave. The joints fit and hold securely, and the mouthpiece is smooth and comfortable...all in all, a much higher quality instrument than similarly priced plastic recorders (especially the colored transparent ones). My one complaint about this recorder is that it is slightly shorter, with the finger holes closer together, than the wooden recorder I play (I have long fingers, so this recorder is somewhat awkward to play at times)...but this does make it excellent for children or those with smaller hands/shorter fingers. A great beginner/student or backup instrument.
