Our Perspective

Yamaha is a brand well known in the music world so start your beginning recorder player out right with the Yamaha recorders. The ivory YRS-24B has been a favorite of mine as an educational consultant from the very beginning.  -Judy

Yamaha has combined quality and durability to bring you their 20 Series Recorders. Made of ABS resin, these lightweight recorders feature precise, uniform intonation, making them perfect for beginners.

Specifications:

  • Key of C
  • Double holes; C-C#, D-D#
  • Three piece construction
  • Baroque fingering
  • Recorder is 12-3/4" long.   
  • Includes a drawstring ivory cloth carrying bag and fingering chart.  Yamaha recorders do not include a cleaning rod!  We recommend purchasing the Basic Beat Recorder Cleaning Rod.

Recorder Care:

  1. After playing, wipe out moisture inside of recorder (use a lint-free gauze or cloth) plus a recorder cleaning rod; then put the recorder in it's case.
  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 benzine or methyl alcohol.
  4. Use recorder cream around the joints when assemblying your recorder.

As good of tone as you can get out of an economical recorder.
Kelly B on Jul 26, 2014
It's the best recorder I've used in my classroom - it is nice having the 3 pieces, and it's good quality.
Lara W on Apr 29, 2014
Extremely durable and affordable for large classes of children. Lovely tone and easy to clean! Been using them for 10 years and never disappointed!

Is this a good instrument for a 5 yrs. old to play?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2013
Best Answer: It would be a challenge for a 5 year old to play correctly. Covering the holes would be difficult for a small hand, and it required fine motor skills which are beyond most 5 year olds. However, lots of youngsters get recorders and play them like a whistle until they grow into them or get personal instruction.

Do you recommend purchasing the cleaning rod as well, or is it really necessary?
Rebecca D on Jan 24, 2014
Best Answer: I don't find a cleaning rod necessary. I teach my students to brush their teeth before playing and if they need to clean out their recorder, rinse it with warm water works well. If one needs to disinfect it, use a little vinegar water, or diluted mouth wash with a disinfectant. Then rinse well. It can even be cleaned in the dishwasher - just be sure the heating element is off.

Is the case durable? With some other brands I have noticed that the drawstring hem will come undone and that the string itself will break at the seam. I would like to get two years use out of the recorder and case for my students.
Virginia W on Feb 4, 2016
Best Answer: The recorder itself is very durable and great quality! The case drawstring is rather flimsy and can come off easily if your students use the case regularly/pull too hard to tighten it. The bag doesn't rip easily and is made to be mostly waterproof (except opening) material and kids can enjoy drawing on the case instead of the recorder if you wish to have them personalize it. Overall, great recorder, below average case.

Is baroque fingering better for children beginners than german?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2015
Best Answer: Baroque fingering is most common, This is because it translates better to beginning band instruments and is easier to play in tune.

Is the carrying bag made of cotton? I'm looking to wash the carrying bags my students use, but I don't want them to shrink.
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
Best Answer: I'm not sure they will hold up to washing. They appear to be a cotton canvas but they are not super great quality.

Can you get different colors?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2014
Best Answer: Greetings shopper ~ Yamaha...YRS-24B is only offered in Ivory. YRS-20B = 3-piece soprano recorders from Yamaha are available in 3 color options & utilize the same quality material & design specs as the YRS-24B. Translucent color choices offered for the YRS-20B currently = Blue...YRS-20BB + Green...YRS-20BG + Pink...YRS-20BP. I own both YRS-24B + YRS-20BB (blue) and I personally favor the blue simply due to its jewel like, color appearance!
