Summary: Bought this for my 4 year old girl and she loves it. I'ts fun teaching her how to play it and to make the different musical notes by covering the holes up with her finger tips. It even brings back my childhood memories of playing in the 'recorder' group at school and can still remember how to play the odd tune or two!! The only reason why I didn't give this a 5 star rating is that it is translucent which wasn't mentioned on the description when I bought it.
Summary: Bought for my 4 year old, and she loves it. Brilliant to see her trying to play. Looks good, Sounds good. House just got noisier but who cares when they are having so much fun. recommended for any age.
Summary: I bought this a few days ago and it came the next day! i hve been using it in a medieval music project and we got full marks!! Our teacher said it was mainly because we added a recorder. I have been really leased and will continue to play.
Summary: bought one of these a couple of years ago and have only just noticed that it is baroque pitch - not a problem if you are playing on your own, but not much good for school recorder groups or any other ensemble playing.
Summary: I have bought this one (my daughter and everything in pink) plus Yamaha YRS24BUKII Descant recorder . They costed the same (now I see the price is different for both) but this one here is worse, as comes without cleaning rod, and uses plastic, quite stiff case (as opposed to the other one having a soft material case, allowing it to dry faster I suppose).
