This Recorder Workshop 601 descant recorder is firstly and most importantly wonderful value. It is comparable in quality to much more established brands including Aulos and Yamaha, but is available at at a fraction of the cost. It is therefore perfect for the budget-conscious school or parent.
Secondly this instrument has surpringly accurate intonation. It has an arched windway allowing for a clear, focused tone and excellent tuning. I certainly doesn't produce that shrill overblown sound that is so familiar with cheaper recorders. It is made from high quality ABS resin which is perfect for young beginners as it's strong yet lightweight. It is supplied with a durable zip-up faux-leather bag and a fingering chart (middle C - top top D).
