Made from high-quality ABS-plastic which is hygienic to clean it is an ideal first recorder for teaching in groups or classes. The large finger holes make it particularly suitable for children. Produced in collaboration with reputable Dutch recorder maker Adriana Breukink, the Dream range is a popular choice of instrument with all levels of player. Based on the renaissance style after van Eyck it has a wide bore giving it a broad, full sound, but has conventional baroque fingering. This result in a sound that is full and powerful like the renaissance originals but with an easy response over two octaves. It is also popular with folk musicians who require a louder instrument for performance with amplified instruments.

Includes a material pouch case, cleaning rod and fingering chart.

Mollenhauer Dream Soprano Recorder Red Glitter Double Holes

This recorder is pleasant to play, and to look at. With its wide bore it is good for folk and medieval music. The highest notes are not very responsive, but that’s to be expected with wide bore instruments,

Durable with a great sound

I use this recorder as my teaching recorder. The larger holes make it a bit challenging for younger players, and you after a while you get used to the fact that the thumb hole needs to be pinched accurately as it is less forgiving of poor thumb technique on the very high notes. These two downsides are way made up for by all the positives. It just looks great, so the kids love me playing it. It sounds great, with the warm renaissance type sound. Being plastic and affordable, I can teach with it without fear of it falling on the ground or a child breaking it.

Nice and loud: difficult at the top

It may be me, but I found it harder to get high notes on this than any other plastic or wooden record I've played. After a bit of experimentation I can manage up to d7 (though it couldn't be called pretty), but so far c7 and g# have defeated me. It's much easier to play loud at the bottom though and has a good clear tone. And call me superficial, but it looks fun.

It is a good recorder, with some buts…..

Overall the Red Dream Soprano sounds OK, it is louder than a normal Baroque style recorder and has a nice tone. The down side is that you can’t just pick it up and play, the holes are much bigger and so it takes a bit of getting used to making sure the holes are completely covered. If you have big podgy fingers like me, because the holes are bigger they appear to be closer together. They are probably not but they just seem that way. The lowest notes require a bit more breath control than a normal recorder. The sparkly red and gold is frankly a bit garish and childish for an adult, and I think it makes it look like a cheap toy. I would have preferred it to be plain black or brown. I might be temped to spray it a different colour.
