Our Perspective

Good sound, easy to play, great price.  What more could you ask for in a soprano recorder?  This recorder is just the ticket for elementary music teachers looking for a quality, affordable soprano for their beginning players.  What I really like is the cloth bag which allows the recorder to dry out between playing rather than being in a plastic bag.  -Judy

These recorders are inexpensive.

One-piece recorders are much easier for children to use than three-piece recorders. It's a great price!

A great recorder at a great price!
Tom S on Aug 14, 2013
The price was right on these recorders to fit the limited income of my student's families. They are one piece so they don't go out of tune and they are durable. Good enough sound for the classroom.

We have 500 3rd-5th graders beginning a new recorder program, so this inexpensive option was a good fit for our needs.

These recorders speak well and have a nice sound for beginners and the price is great.
Heidi T on Feb 28, 2013
Inexpensive but didn't look cheap. One piece for little ones.
Michelle W on Feb 18, 2013
I needed an inexpensive -- not cheap -- recorder that all my students could afford. I am excited to hear how they sound!

The one piece recorders are great for my second and third graders, and have a quality sound.

Confirmation retreat using the movie: The Mission . This is a gift for students.
Vivian C on Nov 2, 2012
This recorder is inexpensive (which is important to me because I am asking the students to pay for their instruments), but is still a quality instrument. I teach music in an elementary school, and the recorder is an instrument that everyone can learn to play and be successful at!
Katrina L on Oct 24, 2012
I needed an inexpensive instrument to teach fundamentals of music to my 3rd grade class.
Kate P on Oct 19, 2012
My students and I ordered over 60 recorders last year and these seemed to be the best match for what they had last year.
Katrina P on Oct 16, 2012
Great price. Good quality, does not break as easily! Students love it!
SUSAN B on Oct 14, 2012

Kristy T on Oct 12, 2012
Because it is a durable, one-piece recorder that students will not take apart.

I am studying Music Ed., and need to learn it!
Kara B on Sep 17, 2012
The description of the recorder assured me that it has been teacher-tested and that it has a quality sound. I have used Angel recorders in the past, which are good. I'm hoping this recorder will also have a good quality sound. I also chose it because I am paying out of pocket and I need to be frugal.
Irma B on Sep 16, 2012
It was inexpensive for the students.

I needed to replace our school recorders, and I wanted one piece recorders. (old ones were 3 pieces, and they were a pain.)

good price, good sound
Suzette R on Jun 13, 2012
I am beginning a program and this will be good for my kids ages 2-5.
L M on Jun 3, 2012
I purchased a few of these at our state music educators conference and was highly impressed with the durability of this recorder. My students seemed to break their other (different brand) recorders more than usual this year for some reason so I had to order more. I chose the Harmony recorders because they are the perfect choice for durability and low price. So far, these Harmonys haven't broken at all!
Yvette T on Jun 1, 2012
good quality

It was what I was looking for and the price was better than any other store

IS THIS WORTH IT ?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I think they are worth it. I have 250 for my students - 3rd through 6th grade. Students get a recorder in third grade. I number it and it stays at the school, with the student, until the end of 6th grade. After that they can keep it home. Since it is part of my curriculum, the School District pays for them (How awesome is that!!)

As for the instrument itself, it holds up pretty good as a classroom set. The "basic range - low D to high E" sounds great. Most of the music I teach my students are in this range. I like the sound of them.
Worth it? YES. It is not a "dollar store recorder!" The price is right for the community I serve - a Title One School.
Enjoy
how good is this recorder? On a rating scale from one through ten
A shopper on Aug 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would give it 8-9. The instrument plays well and has a nice tone, but is pitched very sharp. When playing it with Orff instruments or prerecorded accompaniments, this creates a challenge.
Do I need a recorder cleaning rod?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I always take the cleaning rod out due to the fact that I have too many students get it stuck in the recorder and can't get it out. I tell them to rinse it with warm soapy water and stand it up to dry. It's much easier.
I got one of these in school and we only spent one day learning to use it so is there a way I can get my hands on an easy to understand and more detailed instruction pamphlet on how to play it?
A shopper on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our most popular instruction books are listed here:

Does this recorder work good for children at school?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this recorder is made specifically for elementary classroom use
does it fit high school student hands easily?
Melissa D on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A high school student would be able to play this instrument easily.
What is the length of this recorder?
Sandra D on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The recorder is approximately 12" long.
Is this recorder considered "baroque" fingerings?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This recorder is Baroque/English/Standard fingering.

Do recorders come in different keys or can you play a recorder in various keys?
dennis watts on Dec 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Recorders do come in different keys based on their voice/range (sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, or bass). Sopranino recorders are the smallest/highest and they are in F. Soprano recorders like this one are all in they key of C. Alto recorders are usually in F, tenor recorders in C, and bass recorders in F. You can play in other keys besides C on a C recorder since there are fingerings for chromatic notes outside of the C scale.
I'm looking for an economical recorder made of strong enough plastic
to endure the hot water of a cafeteria dishwasher daily. Will this one be strong enough? If not, does anyone have a suggestion. It should be one piece, as the joint becomes too loose with daily washing.
Karen Reiff on Apr 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Greetings Karen R. ~ Recorders made from ABS (resin) plastic is a stronger (dense) & more durable material choice vs say a brittle acrylic type. Not indicated here, but Im guessing this house brand is ABS as well ? However, this instrument is listed as a 1-Piece (solid) construction recorder...no joint separation. If your dishwasher there allows you to adjust the water temp. at all, that would help. You could always simply add a gentle anti-bacterial / disinfectant solution in the mix to make up for reducing the water temp. Just throwing out some ideas coming to mind at the moment !
