The 509B 'Symphony' Alto plastic recorder by Aulos.

Aulos are one of the major names in plastic recorders and the first manufacturer to successfully make a recorder from ABS synthetic resin. The 500 Symphony series is more faithful to historic designs and provides players with an inexpensive instrument of highly quality, with good intonation and response.

This recorder is in three pieces and is supplied with a brown case, cleaning rod, thumb-rest, fingering chart and joint grease.

A sound recorder !

Having happily had an Aulos 209B treble for many years but some difficulty recently sounding high notes cleanly, I decided to try the Aulos 509B, with which I am content. While my technique has also improved, the new instrument has played its part with high Fs and Gs just that bit easier to sound and play smoothly. It is a comfortable instrument to play, just a tad different from the 209B. It rarely fogs up and, if it does, is easy to clear. The sound is pleasant enough. My purchase had the advantage over a wooden recorder of instant gratification: I have been able to practice my high Fs every day with no delay! For an intermediate player like myself I recommend the 509B as a sound recorder for everyday play and practice.

Excellent service and value for money

I bought this Aulos 509 as an upgrade to my very old (and much loved) Aulos 209 alto recorder. It arrived the next day and I'm very happy indeed with the improved sound, response and intonation.

Aulos 509B Recorder

The recorder is nice to handle and has a pleasant tone. As my first recorder in a very long time (I used to play in the school assembly at primary school) I have had a couple of issues. Peter at the Early Music Shop gave some very helpful advice to overcome them
