Quality recorder at a price my students can afford.
Heidi S on May 16, 2014
Along with basic keyboard instruction, I use West Music recorders to introduce me elementary music students to wind instruments. The West Music recorder is both affordable and accurate in pitch production. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested, as am I, in teaching music literacy to young children.
Donna L on Apr 28, 2014
Good value for young recorder players.
Ellen J S on Apr 3, 2014
These recorders are great for beginners at a terrific price! Most of my students buy 2-- one for home and one for school-- because they are so affordable!
Bonnie K on Mar 24, 2014
It is cheap, I am a poor music teacher, and have poor students who want to own their own recorders at home to practice on.

I S on Jan 25, 2013
This is a great product for a great price!
Lindsay A on Jan 24, 2013
They are hard, quality plastic so it is very hard to break them. It is easier to see fingers on white recorders than it is on black (the students fingers).

Heidi S on May 16, 2014
I already have the Yamaha soprano /descant recorder but I need some more and wondered if the pitch on the West version of soprano recorder would sound the same as the Yamaha version? I don't want to buy them and realize that they are a slight off in pitch.
Missy on Apr 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe they will match g quite nicely. I use these recorders exclusively when I teach recorders and we use recorder karate where the students are required to play with the accompaniment. Hope this helps. Anna Beth

I know that the quality of the Yamaha 3-part recorders is very high. Do the West Music WM2400 3 piece recorder w/bag, match in quality?
Susan S on Aug 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are just a very small step down from the Yamaha. If the Yamaha is a 10, this is a 9. The tone is a little bit less solid, though most likely not noticeable by anyone who isn't a musician. They also do tend to squeak a little bit easier than the Yamaha, but again, only just very slightly. I happily made the switch from Yamaha to the West Music recorder for my music program. The savings is definitely worth the tiny drop in quality for me.
What age group?
Jenny on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are great for any age above 3.

I have always used Yamaha recorders but I teach 400 5th graders and want to buy a large number of recorders to have one here for each of my students. Have you used these along with Yamaha? I'm worried that the mix of the two brands will be a bit different tuning-wise.

Thanks for any info you can give me.
Lisa
Lisa V on Sep 4, 2015
How do these compare to the Yamaha Recorder? I have generally found the Yamaha is less squeaky than other recorders.
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
How is the bag?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The bag is made of cloth with a string to close it. I often cut the strings off because students pull them tight, tie knots in them and otherwise create difficulties. I like the cloth bags because I think they help the recorders quickly dry out after playing in class.

I have used these inexpensive recorders from West for years. A great deal.
