As an elementary music teacher, I have to listen to hundreds of recorders a year- this one has a nice sound, but clogs up after a few minutes where the sound becomes muted and it's difficult to push air thru it. Yes, you can clean it, or clear it with a rush of air, but who has time to stop and do that every few minutes? Students love to have a choice of colors, but I have found mine prefer a better quality instrument for the same $$ even if it's not as cute.

          Knew it was a good product the minute I held one in my hand. And the little ones--just beginning to learn about the difference between music and noise--realized they weren't toys like they were used to using. Nice job, folks!

              My daughter was super excited to receive your product, she got the blue translucent recorder. It works just like the ones her classmates have but she is able to distinguish which one is hers at a glance. We are more than happy with the purchase :)

                I own this recorder and I got it years ago for fourth grade music. It sounds good and has nice baroque fingering unlike others.

                    I have my students order yamaha recorders. I work in a title 1 rural community with low income. I first started ordering canto one piece recorders, which sound fine, but the build quality to them is sub par and they break VERY easily. I would definitely recommend a yamaha recorder for a hundred pennies more.
