Love the Tonality!
20 January 2012
Summary: The Aulos Alto is a finely crafted instrument for a beginner like me. I am very impressed with the tonality, and the ease with which to reach the key holes. IMHO, I made the right decision to purchase this instrument over the suprano ...If you are just starting out with the recorder, this is a very good instrument to go with.
Summary: I've had my Aulos 309 alto since the early 70s. It's modeled after a Coolsma custom instrument, and was the very first high-quality plastic instrument to come on the market. It has a wonderful depth to its tone that is rivaled by only a few other plastic recorders, such as the Yamaha 300 series.
Summary: I recently heard a performance by a recorder consort which piqued my curiosity. The Aulos is an inexpensive, good looking entry. The tone is quite good, assuming I do my part. That is the area where I cannot evaluate the instrument. I have sometimes have problems getting my fingers in exactly the right position to get a clear sound in the correct register, with the precise breath control to stay on pitch.
Summary: This recorder is a great first recorder. It sounds very nice. When I first got it there were no problems, the recorder was flawless. This is my first recorder and I am already playing a few simple songs just 1 week after getting it. Overall I love the Aulos recorder, and I would recommend it highly.
Summary: I love this recorder! I had used a friend's Aulos and fell in love with it, so I bought my own. A slightly different model, I think I like this one better. It has a very clear tone and it speaks very well in all registers. The beauty of the lower range is what really makes this instrument sparkle.
