Our Perspective

This is a good, one piece recorder for the budget conscious educator or parent.  As an educator, a one piece unit meant my students weren’t playing around with the foot or head joint as with two or three piece recorders.  I liked this as then I knew they were focusing on the job at hand, learning how to read music and to play the only real instrument they might ever own.  -Judy

Fantastic Site Fantastic Price
Roseann M on May 21, 2013
This is the best price and quality for students in grades 1 and 2. Students won't take the recorders apart, which will cause them to have difficulty in playing some of the musical tones.

Wonderful for my students and affordable.

I teach a third grade recorder class. This recorder is the one we use. We had a few more students move into the district, so I'm stocking up on extra Angel recorders "just in case" we need them.
Thomas B on Feb 8, 2013
Because it is one piece so it holds up better to constant use, and because recorders are an affordable way to make music theory practical!

Our school purchased these last year and was very pleased with the quality for the low price, so we decided to order them again this year for our students. They arrived last year packaged very well. We also received a personal thank you card from the company for our order.

The recorder was recommended by my son's third grade music teacher. Since the students can not take the school recorders home, he thought it would be a good idea for them to purchase their own to use and practice at home.

Good price and need it for pre-schools kids.

Charles B on Sep 19, 2013
How good is the tone?
How well do they hold up?
Does the white top tend to come off?
Britain S on Mar 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I've been teaching with these recorders for about 7 years now. The tone is decent. It's not quite Yamaha level, but it's close. It's worlds better than most other recorders in its price range. I find the 1-piece less distracting to students.

If you're playing it once in a while, you could probably get 4-5 years out of it. If you're playing every day, or even every week, then I would say 2 years tops. It's easy to tell when it's time to replace it. It gets clogged easily. Once I had one that started to smell awful after a while, and cleaning it was not successful! (I've heard a rumor that some plastic recorders can be put in a dishwasher, but I've never tried.)

I've had some recorders dropped on the floor over the years, and if it does break, it's more often cracked at the bottom than near the mouthpiece area. Either way, I just scotch-taped the pieces together, and it still sounded fine.

I like these recorders, and I'll continue teaching with them. (I have the students take out the cleaning rod and fingering chart and toss them. We don't use the rod, and I have a fingering chart that I prefer.) The Yamaha's are starting to get cheaper, so I might change over eventually, but for now, these are perfect for my classes.
when does the recorder get shiped to me?
A shopper on Sep 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Please contact us at service@westmusic.com with any questions regarding your order.
Does this recorder have one or two holes on the bottom?
Sandy M on Sep 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: he bottom two holes, each have double holes.
I noticed that the cleaning rod is not long enough to reach to the top of the recorder, on the inside. Plus, the hole in the bottom of the recorder is very small, and difficult to fit a cloth in. How do you actually get them clean inside? Also, can they be sanitized in a bucket of 1:10 diluted bleach-water, or will that harm the plastic?
Debra L on Jan 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cloth used needs to be very small. I recommend my students use a small piece a thin towel or thin sock. However, they dry quickly when the weather is dry. Usually my students do not bother to clean them. When I clean them between uses, I put them in my dishwasher with hot water and the dryer. I have not problems with them being damaged while cleaning.
do they work well?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They work ok but they break easily. Basically you get what you pay for as they always say.
Question?
I am a beginner, and I want a beautiful sounding recorder (possibly classic) that I will find satisfactory once i know how to play.If you can let me know if this is good that would be greatly appreciated, and if not, if you suggest a more suitable type/brand/anything, it would be great! Thank you so much
A shopper on Jan 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: this recorder is 2,50 for a reason...I buy them for my elementary music classes because they're the cheapest, it gets the job done! if you're looking just for yourself, invest in one a little bit better.
I want to start recorders at a school that hasn't had music in a few years and was wondering if there are discounts available when purchasing in bulk?

What are all the letter notes?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Lowest note is C (reading middle C on staff, but sounding an octave higher) and can go up two octaves, including accidentals
How long does it take to get my recorder if I do shipping?
A shopper on May 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Shipping time varies depending on where you live. UPS guarantees 7-10 days for any of the contiguous 48 states, but it is usually quicker than that. We ship from Iowa, so the closer you are to Iowa, the shorter the shipping time.
how good does it play?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2015
Is no one concerned that you can't take the head off to clean this?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The entire recorder can be soaked in a bath of 2 parts hot water and 1 part rubbing alcohol, or sufficient antibacterial dishwashing liquid in hot water to disinfect, then left to air dry. Of course, the cleaning rod is included to use a thin strip of cotton cloth to swab and dry the bore of the pipe.

You could also use a trumpet/horn mouthpiece brush, which looks like tiny baby bottle brush and is about 3 inches long and maybe .5 in wide, or a pipe cleaner to clean around the mouthpiece end and the square opening at the ramp if there was concern with hygiene on that end.

Commercial disinfectant sprays or solutions for instrument mouthpieces are available for purchase, too.

Basic maintenance after playing and and a periodic bath should keep any potential problems at bay.
