The 301 descant (soprano) recorder from Recorder Workshop offers three piece construction with an arched windway for improved breath control and clear focused tone, and is available in a fabulous choice of bright & vibrant colours.
The 301 is equally suitable for classroom, ensemble and solo playing. Made from high quality, strong ABS resin these instruments are ideal for beginners. The tuning is precise which means they will blend well together in an ensemble. Each one is supplied, with a fingering chart and cleaning rod, as well as a durable matching colour draw-string cloth bag.
Available in classic black, blue, red, green, purple and pink.
Tom, recorder specialist, reviewed the 301GR on 28th January 2016
The first thing that struck me upon seeing this recorder is how well-presented it is. At this price point you may, usually rightly, expect something to be lacking in at least the appearance. The colour is consistent and vivid and the instrument feels solid and well made.
The overall tone is comparable to the considerably more expensive Yamaha YRS20BG, and the intonation is remarkably on point. Supplied complete with a cloth bag this is the recorder I have suggested to my nephew for when he starts lessons this term.
