Product Description

Product Description

Yamahas 20 series YRS24B recorder is designed to provide a perfect start to anyone's musical education. It offers an ideal amount of air resistance for easy control and features an accuracy of intonation you would expect to find only on more expensive models. Though other plastic recorders may have a similar appearance, Yamaha ABS recorders are truly superior instruments.

Box Contains

  • Recorder
  • Cleaning rod

    Fairly bright, hard sound as is usual with plastic instruments, but responds well when warmed up and is surprisingly forgiving of less-than-perfect breath pressure, which will encourage learners. Very cheap for a Yamaha branded instrument, too. I'd happily recommend this for both children and adult beginners (the latter will note that its dark brown colour looks quite dignified!).

    Wife is happy, says it is definitely good enough and sufficient for beginners,
    even better than expected.
    Happy with it.

    Excellent value for money, I'm usually not very impressed with the sound of plastic recorders but this one is excellent, sounds very warm and nice for a plastic instrument, looks lovely too. Comes with canvas bag and cleaner plus one sheet of instructions. Was delivered next day. Originally bought it for my son and he loves it, bought one for myself now too.

    Pretty decent recorder, good for schools, though I bought it for myself.
    My daughter received Yamaha Descant Recorder - Pink.
    This one here is better one. Cleaning rod is included (unlike the other one) and the case is soft (made of a kind of linen material) allowing it to dry better.
    Sound wise I think they are both very similar.
    I also paid the same amount for each though I can see, the pink one is cheaper now, which is the way it should be.

    My grandson told me he was to learn to play a recorder and he did not like the ones at school. So, I logged onto Amazon and found just what I needed and bought him this recorder. He is now doing very well with it and is very proud of his 'own' instrument

    For this price, the recorder looks amazing - it is indeed a posh musical instrument with lovely finish and feel. Bought it as a present and so dont know how it would play yet but I have other Yamaha music products and trust their high quality.

    The Yamaha Plastic Soprano 24b recorder is an excellent instrument.
    It is strong and durable. I have a white one and for the price it is an absolute bargain.
    It is not merely a childs toy, as it is in three parts it is tunable.
    I have played recorders of all types and makes for decades, so much of the quality of the sound is not purely the instrument but the way it is played.

    On this instrument I have played in recorder consort and duets, Mozart, Telemann, Bach, many baroque pieces etc
    Do not be put off by its low price, it is not inferior in anyway- an excellent buy.
