Buying a new recorder

I could tell that the advice I was getting was expert and objective. This enabled me to make my choice with confidence in having the best information.

Moeck Rottenburgh Soprano Recorder in Palisander

Needed the full 6 weeks of playing in and oiling quite a bit. Still shrill at the top C/D after that but improving. Compared with the same model in Grenadill, the Grenadill has more mellow sound, Palisander is brighter in tone.

Buying a soprano recorder

It was so helpful being able to have three instruments on trial before committing to the purchase of one of them and also receiving advice on which instruments to choose. I was allowed to keep and play the recorders for up to two weeks, although being new hardwood instruments, I could not play each instrument for very long every day. I now have an instrument whose tone I love and so enjoy playing. I would highly recommend this shop
