I only say noise maker because I never practiced enough to get good.
Now it’s my daughter’s turn.
The recorder is well constructed of durable plastic. The pieces for together snugly and evenly.
The sound is as I remember it. Pitchy but true.
Very convenient to have a cleaning stick. We never had that growing up. Bonus!
The instrument is ancient, has been around since the middle ages, and there have been numerous varieties. It’s also used in many different types of music genres, from Classical to even Rock! A great example: Several were used in the studio version of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”, all of them played by John Paul Jones.
These are the two types of recorders which are most prevalent today:
- “Baroque”, which was designed in the 17th century, for better tone and projection than older varieties.
- “German” (such as this one) which in comparison are a relatively new development, created in the early 19th century.
The German recorder is based on a simple variation of the Baroque, in that the right-hand 5th hole is smaller than the 4th hole. With Baroque recorders, the opposite is true. Without writing a book about why this was done, in a nutshell German recorders make fingering major notes easier. This is exactly why they’re great for introducing people to playing music in a simple way. Of course, there’s a trade-off: Other chromatic notes (such as flats and sharps) are much more difficult if not impossible to play in-tune on one.
You’ll always find that serious teachers and musicians use Baroque recorders, because they allow every note in a given octave to be played exactly on pitch, and when properly taught are really no more difficult to learn to play than German recorders. Also, switching from German to Baroque fingering is considered to be a difficult thing to accomplish. So, learning the latter instrument is a better idea in the first place if you’re planning to stick with playing a recorder down the road.
Beside being easy to play, this specific product is a great choice for beginners, especially children:
- Very easily cleaned since it breaks down, and includes a rod to assist. But, a warning: If you’re thinking about the dishwasher, don’t do it. ABS plastic is -not- considered food-safe.
- Holds pitch of major notes fairly well, as expected from a German recorder.
- Its ridiculously low price certainly won’t break the bank if you lose interest, damage, or lose it.
The one nit I have regarding this product is the included fingering chart, with the staff and notes in a font so tiny that it’s basically useless. This is of course easily cured with a simple Google search using the “Images” tab to come up with a better one.
In the end, the price remains is the biggest selling point here, whether you just want to check out what playing a recorder is all about, or perhaps take a trip down memory lane back to your younger music class days. The best recorders are eons away from this one quality-wise, but I don't get the feeling that's the purpose here. Enjoy making a bit of music, for cheap!

The first thing that struck me about this recorder is that it is sturdy. It is made for the young musician that might sit on it, drop it repeatedly (and perhaps in a mud puddle), etc.
The sound quality is very good. The low notes are clear, and the higher notes are crisp. Just based on the nature of the instrument, you can get more volume out of the higher notes, but the low tones are sufficiently audible.
This does not have a reed in it. The sound is produced by running over a thin lip of plastic. So, normal levels of use and abuse will not affect it.
The recorder came with a fingering chart with two alternative versions, German and Baroque. The German version is much easier to learn, but it does not include all the semi-tones. Some other reviewers seem upset by this.
My take is that it depends where your music lover is in his or her journey. Most folks start on the recorder, but then progress to an entirely different instrument (in a potentially different musical family). If you make the first steps in that journey fun, rewarding, and not wildly taxing then he or she is more likely to continue. Just my $.02
All in all, you cannot be the price for this lovely, starting instrument.

I took recorder in college as one of my Arts Electives. I had a blast! We had students different types of recorders in different tones: soprano, alto, and bass. It was so cool that we had concerts in three part harmony.
This recorder is made of plastic, but seems very nice. It is the soprano recorder tuned to C. It has a decent tone, I tried to get a little vibrato and still trying to get that effect.
It seems to be a decent recorder, one that I can practice to get back to the level I played in college. Also one for kids to learn on.
