The Harmony H30T C Tenor Recorder is an exceptional and affordable student instrument for the classroom. 3-Piece, Baroque-English Fingering. Includes a durable bag, fingering chart, cleaning rod, recorder joint cream, and thumb rest.
I have two recorders, soprano and alto. On the alto, the stretch between the holes is just about the maximum reach for my hands. I would love to get a tenor recorder, but am worried that the holes might be beyond my capabilities. Any idea on the hole distances?Any information regarding this would be helpful and much appreciated.

Best Answer:Hello there. I own a normal tenor recorder and it is no problem to reach because I have very long fingers. In your case, I would suggest a comfort tenor recorder (can be found at mollenhauer[a website]). My friend who plays tenor recorder in our group has one and it has a lot more keys than the normal tenor and is also bent in the neck (like a nick bass recorder) but the holes are much closer together. The holes on a normal tenor are father apart than that of the altos. If you have really short fingers, go for the comfort tenor! Hope this helped!
