This beautiful recorder is made from robust ABS plastic and finished in an attractive simulated wood-grain. It is light brown with ivory trim; a design which is modelled on the original 18th century baroque instrument by Richard Haka.
It consists of 3 parts which can be smoothly yet firmly fitted together to allow for consistent, accurate tuning. The wind way is curved which helps to provide a little resistance to the air when playing and hence allows for a softer, finer tone. It also makes the breath easier to control and therefore allows for more expressive playing.
The 709W is supplied in a durable, faux leather (leatherette) bag with a cleaning rod, joint grease and an adjustable thumb rest.
