Recorder31 Day 30 | Team Recorder's Sarah Jeffery Compares Modern Altos

It's the penultimate day of this year's Recorder31 – we may be reaching the end, but we're far from slowing! Today's post features one of the biggest online stars of the recorder world, Team Recorder's Sarah Jeffery, who has created a brand new video especially for Recorder31!

Today's video sees Sarah comparing a range of contemporary alto recorders, demonstrating the modernisations which their makers have added, and the changes in sound that result.
