Yamaha YRS-20BB Soprano Recorder, Translucent Blue


Item No. 400288
Alt. Part # YRS-20BB
UPC Code 86792615035

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 400289 and 400291 for the other colors! -Judy

  • This Yamaha recorder does not include a cleaning rod. We recommend purchasing item #450806 (Harmony BB26 11"Plastic Cleaning Rod).

    This recorder uses three-piece construction which offers numerous advantages:
    They’re easy to clean and dry.
    Fingering can be adjusted to fit player’s hands by slightly swiveling pieces.
    To improve intonation the foot joint’s position can be altered.
    To ensure children are not playing their recorder when they are supposed to be listening, teachers can have students remove the head joint when they’re practicing their fingering.

    The recorder comes with a carrying case to protect it between uses. Since the recorder is transparent, we recommend purchasing a cleaning rod and cleaning cloth to keep it clean and looking its best.

    Recorder Care:

    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 - BB26 11"Plastic Cleaning Rod with the cloth.
    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.
    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.
    Use recorder cream around the joints when assembling your recorder.

  • Yamaha recorder
    Awesome recorder and the price was very decent! My son loves it.
  • great school recorder
    I ordered this model of recorder in the 3 available colors for my elementary school. The recorders are attractive, play well, and are durable. My only complaint is that the cases are not very strong and tear easily and the recorders don't come with a cleaning rod.

    Very quick delivery! Great for beginner.
  • Great recorders!
    My students love these recorders and they are easy for them to play the low notes on! I have been ordering them for years!
  • Yamaha recorders
    The only thing I did not love is the case, if you keep the fingering chart in the case, it is hard for younger students to place the recorder in it, they just jam up the paper, trying to force it in.
  • Great!
    I have ordered these recorders from West Music twice this year and each time, the recorders have come in less than two days. Fantastic customer service! My students are very happy :-)
  • Great Product
    We purchase these recorders for our students to use for music class. They are great and easy to use. They are also very durable. Our order arrived with a week. Great product and service.
