    Comments about Aulos A211A/A511B Tenor Recorder:

    Ok. The A211A-E Aulos recorder. I love this instrument! I am comparing it to the Woodnote ebony (non- wood grain) tenor that has a key. I bought it for it's price, but had many problems with it. This Aulos tenor recorder solved all those problems, from the moment I bought it and actually tried it for the first time. So, you can understand my comparison. The woodnote is a keyed tenor about an inch longer than the Aulos. I still loved the idea of key, because it looks so cool. So, when I bought this one, I was compromising, for it is a tenor without the lower keys. With keyed tenors you need to stretch your fingers because the holes are farther apart and slightly larger. Because of this type of challenge, by playing and practicing, you can reach those holes with no problem. Any piano player understands (I play piano.) But the Woodnote, though good at the bottom register is extremely hard in the upper... especially The last two hole notes in the upper register and the two half notes in the third... (the common fingerings of a recorder...) After the proper break in time for the recorder to hit it's "sweet spot", high E, F and G and it's chromatic counterparts where still impossible to play for me. No matter how much I controlled breath, tonguing and the register hole... they were still impossible to play. Probably something with the Woodnote model... I guess. But the high register on Aulos came out completely true in the high register... even those highest notes! The register hole has an insert, an ivory color ring, most likely for accuracy, something my Aulos soprano and Sapranino does not have. But, still it's a plus, for the tenor has a low flute like sound which is very attractive! Also, The Aulos model has a double seal through out it's three parts. Most recorders only fit and seal with the outside diameter of the middle portion; the Head and Foot of the recorder and that seal must be perfectly fit so no air pressure from your breath is lost. This is where the recorder suffers in the high register. High Register is all about the proper air pressure... something you can obtain with breath control and proper register hole finger placement. Wooden Recorders use cork... expanded so when you fit them there is a COMPLETE seal. ABS synthetic recorders are plastic against plastic and if it is not a perfect seal... you have problems. Aulos uses a patented DOUBLE seal for extra tightness so no leaks form. This gives the upper register what you need... a tight seal and playability. Since the holes are closer together and slightly smaller, if you have smaller hands and thin fingers, it's a lot easier to play, too. (I have long thin fingers, good reach, yet, thin...) The pluses out weigh the cool extra key... and it's only an inch shorter, anyways. I would recommend this recorder for anyone who wants to hit all the notes of a soprano with a tenor, for anyone who has smaller hands... or thinner fingers than most guys like me. The advantages outweigh the negatives. Aulos is company dedicated to ABS recorders. Check them out on line and you will see. High quality thrown into ABS "PLASTIC." I know the idea of a plastic recorder sounds horrible, but if you are playing the recorder in a "Broken Consort, meaning against a full ensemble of the same range of recorders, the wood like sound comes true with other types of instruments... Only a professional recorder player would know the difference anyways. So this recorder is great competing with Yamaha. And many musicians are at a standstill with comparability anyways... Aulos is up there with the best of the ABS... so I definitely recommend it to anyone... how wants to be serious...from the casual player to the pro.

    Comments about Aulos A211A/A511B Tenor Recorder:

    I have Yamaha (Alto B), I have Woonote (Alto F) and I have Aulos (Alto E).

    I've now purchased the Tenor ( which will be key of E).

    What I'd like to say, is of the three brands I own, Aulos performs the very best. The upper and lower registers, are not difficult at all ( to play).

    I own flutes, but have always enjoyed playing the recorder.

    You can NEVER GO WRONG with AULOS. They're great quality, and wonderful instrumental voices.

      Comments about Aulos A211A/A511B Tenor Recorder:

      Speaks easily and clearly and in-tune throughout the range c' - c''' -- c#''' is passable; d''' is difficult straight on, but slurring up from c#''' works OK; d#''' doesn't seem usable. The c' - c#' keys are well designed and executed and work well. The fingering is predominately normal -- changes are needed for a few notes, e.g., the alternate or trill fingering for b-flat' requires half-hole (c#' key) rather than full hole (c' key), but most recorders have some idiosyncratic fingerings.
