Happy with purchase

At first, the recorder sounded harsh and I wondered if I had wasted my money. But about a week into the break-in period, the warmth of the sound began to come through, and now I'm very happy with it. It's very responsive and easily reaches high and low notes. I am an amateur player, so others will have more detailed insights about the instrument than I can offer. This is a good instrument for someone like me who wants to get away from plastic but can't justify spending a lot for a recorder. This cost me about $100 US and shipping was fairly fast considering it had to cross an ocean.

This is an excellent recorder. It produces a nice tone, and has sound intonation. Light and pleasing to play - very responsive throughout its range. Recommend without hesitation.

Very Good Quality For Reasonable Price

I'm not a professional but I wanted a a good recorder and the Mollenhauer Canta Soprano Recorder in Pearwood was perfect for me- clean sound but very expensive instrument

Delightfully sweet sounding instrument

After nearly a week playing this daily, and comparing it to both an ABS plastic recorder and the Mollenhauer Adri's Dream model, I can say that the Canta has a very sweet bright sound indeed and being of narrow internal bore (compared to the Adri) it is easier to reach the high notes but also speaks very well indeed at bottom C. It is about 5mm shorter than a typical ABS recorder and likewise compared to the Adri. So with that and the narrow outer dimensions, it does feel a little petite to hold (and is ideal for small hands/short fingers). But right hand finger positions are not as close as the Adri. Overall, a wonderful instrument. In fact my only disappointment with Mollenhauer, (well more of a mystery really) is why they supply that useless fibre mop thing instead of a proper cleaning rod.
