5.0 out of 5 stars Sing, don't squeak! 11 April 2009
Verified Purchase
This is the second Aulos recorder I have bought for my grand-daughters following upon the desperation of trying to get a decent sound out of similarly priced recorders by other brands which shall remain unmentioned. The Aulos represents excellent quality for the price, and fits the bill for children learning the instrument at school.

4.0 out of 5 stars School Music 14 Mar 2010
The chosen recorder for schools. This is a good solid instrument that children (and adults) are able to use. Comes with a fabric case, cleaning rod (No cloths) and a two page instruction sheet. Bought this for my childs school recorder lesson.

Just need the ear plugs to go with it ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 23 Dec 2010
I had one of these myself at school- still have it (its lasted a good few years!) Tom wanted one just like mine, and after looking at the various recorders on the market (some were a cheaper, but you get what you pay for !) I decided to get the same one. You get a quality recorder here- it gives a good sound ( well, it will when he learns how to play it!) and I know it will last.
The recorder arrived very promptly in a sturdy cardboard tube.
I would highly recommend this

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 12 Oct 2011
I have a diploma in the recorder and have played many wooden descants and i swear down this is still up there with some of the best. Its so sturdy aswell. I use it alot for busking and the sound travels a long distance. I learned to play on this and still go back to it. I actual played this instrument in one of my final recital pieces. I would always advise wooden trebles but for descants look no further. Dont be swayed by your teachers as you progress telling you to get a wooden one, its way cooler just to wipp this one out and give it some welly! Anyway bad workman blame their tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Learning 19 Feb 2010
By Cath C
Verified Purchase
This recorder is sturdy, easy to clean and comes with a great drawstring bag and cleaner. I bought this recorder as it was the same one I used when I learned how to play the recorder when I was young. My daughter now plays it whenever she can. It provides a great sound and after thinking about buying a much cheaper one, I knew this one produced a better sound and would stand the test of time.
