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.

I had been looking for a while for two recorders for two of my sons. Found these and I have to say I was delighted with the price and quality of these recorders. Delivery was very quick, in fact quicker than I expected, which was a nice surprise. Overall if you are looking for a recorder for your son or daughter, I would recommend these Yamaha ones from this seller. FIRST RATE FROM START TO FINISH!!

I bought this recorder after my son came home saying he needed one for school music lessons. It arrived just as described, with cleaning rod (no cloth) and fingering guide (which really isn't much help if you can't actually read music) and comes in a bag. It is just perfect for my son's lessons. He was very pleased with it. The sound is good (just as I would expect from a Yamaha product having owned a Yamaha flute for many years) and I would recommend this product for any parent/beginner looking for a reasonably priced recorder without it being cheap and nasty. Very pleased with it.

This recorder is excellent value for money - useful for the beginner , or more experienced player. If you are just starting out , like me , then it's a good idea to buy the ' Recorder From The Beginning ' , Book 1 , by John Pitts , to help you understand how to play the notes , tempo , and play some simple tunes. Amazon also sell this book , and I'm finding it invaluable. The recorder is the sort of quality , you'd expect from Yamaha , which is a make you can trust. The recorder comes with a soft case , and cleaner. The sound quality is superb - good fun for all the family.
