Description

Aulos recorders were launched into the Japanese market in 1955. Since that time, Aulos has expanded to become a teacher-favorite in over 50 counties worldwide. The Aulos philosophy is that quality matters. Getting off on the right foot can sometimes mean the difference between a child enjoying and excelling or being frustrated and thus uninterested.

Aulos Adaptive A204AF Soprano Recorder

The Aulos Adaptive A204AF Soprano Recorder is designed for players with a disability in their hands and/or fingers. Any combination of six usable digits (including a thumb) can play an entire chromatic scale from C to A. By rotating and plugging certain holes, the sections can then be glued together into a permanent position for the student. This adaptive recorder can accommodate many fingering options to give the player an instrument that looks and sounds just like a standard recorder.

Please note that if the glue dries out before the recorder is glued in place, or extra glue is needed, DO NOT use Superglue. The adhesive that comes with this recorder is most similar to model airplane glue.

  • Other modifications
    I have used this excellent product, but wish to mention a couple of additional fixes that might help, and are within the ability of most music teachers. 1) I had a student with one arm who had trouble holding the instrument while playing, so I cut and sanded a brace from 3/8" plywood that he could hold between his knees, and screwed the narrow top end of the brace to the lower underside of the recorder. 2) Another student had one normal arm and hand, but only two small fingers on the other very short arm. I made a mitered cut between the 3rd and 4th finger holes, and reglued the instrument at a right angle, so the lower section pointed back toward the right side of her mid chest, allowing her arm and fingers to reach two additional holes. I used the special super glue for plastics for this.
  • Grateful
    Although I've had only one class with my student using this instrument, I can already see a difference in his ability and interest in playing. It's not a magic wand, but it gives this particular student no excuses! And I like that.
  • Great product for hand dexterity issues
    Really appreciate WestMusic supplying an excellent affordable product for those with hand dexterity issues. My 9 year old son has limited use of his left hand but wanted to be able to play a recorder like his classmates. It is still challenging but this instrument makes it possible for him to play.
  • A204AF 7-piece C soprano recorder
    There is nothing wrong, per se, with this instrument, but I was disappointed to discover after receiving it that it is German fingering. I wish there had been a choice for English fingering (or maybe there was and I just didn't see it).
  • Special Needs Recorder
    I am very excited to try this recorder. It looks like a perfect solution for my student that does not have the use of all of her fingers!
