              My 3rd grade daughter was required to get a Soprano Recorder for music class. I saw this one online and was a bit skeptical at first due to the low price. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. A quality product that produces fantastic sound. I highly recommend this product!

                    Comments about Yamaha YRS-24B Soprano Recorder with Baroque Fingering:

                    If you are looking for a high-quality, low price recorder, this is it! If you want a candy-color "toy," go elsewhere.

                    This recorder is about the best quality you can buy, without moving to the wooden recorders that performing recorderists use.

                    I have used these in a classroom setting (as a teacher) for over 10 years. Every year, I order a new batch (approximately 30-50) that my students individually purchase. I have yet to see one of these have anything wrong with them. Yamaha recorders are excellent quality. They are without exception, in tune with each other, every joint fits together perfectly, and "edges" are as smooth as silk. I still have (and actively use) my Yamaha Baroque recorder from the early 1990's, and the quality is still exceptional.

                    There are other good quality recorders out there, and I tend to buy other sizes (alto, tenor, etc) from these companies. However, if you are teaching oodles of students, for the best bang for your buck, buy Yamaha recorders (and buy Baroque, the fingering is easier, and students transfer better to band instruments later).

                    Trust me- your students may gripe about the color at the beginning, but what's more important? Color of the instrument or tone (sound) color? The colorful recorders (and I have tested several brands) tend to be less about excellent quality, and more about getting instruments into kids' hands. While I cannot fault them for trying to interst children in music, I will fault them for not making these candy-colored wannabes just a bit more pricy, and use better materials.

                    Tastes in color change for children anyway; get them colorful lanyards to wear and hold their recorders! Cheaper in the long run (reuse the lanyards every year), and give them MUSIC quality. Trust me, you will never be sorry for picking an instrument of good tone color. And, folks, this is it.

                        I didn't read all the reviews or I would have seen that this recorder is NOT made of wood (the price point should have been a giveaway, i suppose).
                        For a plastic recorder, this one is just fine.
                        I have another Yamaha plastic recorder, ordered from this site from a few years ago & the pitch is exact between the two.

                        These were purchased to sell to the children of the school's music class who wanted their own. The teacher required the quality provided by this particular recorder. The kids love them but wish there were more colors.
