              Comments about Lyons 3 Piece Soprano Colored Recorders:

              I ordered 225 of the Lyons recorders at the beginning of the 2012-13 school year for my students and in February I am on-line looking for replacements since so many of the recorders are broken beyond use and the plastic cases are split apart at the seams. The plastic material is so fragile, they just shatter when one is accidentally dropped on the concrete/tile floor of the music room. Everyone gasps when they hear one fall because they know another horn is broken. I was assigned a new position in my school district, teaching intermediate, after being in the primary levels for 5 years. I had taught recorders for at least 10 years earlier in my career and had always used the old standard, indestructable, brown plastic recorders - of various brands. This year I shopped around for the best price, since many of my students would find it challenging to pay for an instrument. I ordered the Lyons recorders and students were very excited about the beautiful color selections and eager to begin playing. When they arrived, about a half dozen out of 225 were broken apart at the joints before they were even unpacked from the box. As students began carrying them back and forth from home to school, almost evey one broke! As class begins each day, I stand at my podium with a bottle of super glue, piecing back together broken recorders and telling students not to play them in class that day so the glue can dry. The repairs are often unsuccessful and do not last. I appologize to the students for asking them to spend their money on these instruments. I promised them I would write a review to tell of our experience. I will not order these cute little "toys" again.

              Use these for my elementary school. They are a great buy for the price. Obciously not TOP end but if you're looking to save a few bucks, this is the way to go - PLUS a great assortment of colors.
