Our Perspective

Yamaha is a brand well known in the music world so start your beginning recorder player out right with the Yamaha recorders.  When my daughter was in elementary school, she had to have one of each of the three translucent models, and quickly designed her very own tri-toned version.  Well, at least until everyone else in class decided to follow suit and share some of their parts too! See items 400291 and 400288 for the other colors! -Judy

  • Recorder is 12-3/4" long.

Recorder Care:

  1. After playing, wipe out moisture inside of recorder (use a lint-free gauze or cloth); then put the recorder in its case. Use item # 450806 - Recorder Cleaning Rod with the cloth.
  2. The labium (where the air flows in the front of the recorder just under the mouthpiece), and section immediately surrounding it, is the most important part for sound production.  Be careful not to damage it in any way.  
  3. The mouthpiece section is the part most easily dirtied; always keep it clean. Wipe the outer surface clean whenever it becomes dirty. NEVER use benzene or methyl alcohol.
  4. Use recorder cream around the joints when assembling your recorder.

My students get to choose the color they want - blue, green, or pink. Last year we tried another brand to save money, but it was not a good route. Several recorders broke and the sound quality was inferior. Yamaha makes the BEST plastic recorders available!
