Beautiful mellow, rich tone and looks good

The instrument has a lovely mellow, rich tone and looks good. The split key is easy to use and is quite dainty. Unfortunately I have small hands and even with the split key found it quite difficult to stretch my fingers. I may be better with a comfort tenor, but they are quite a bit more expensive.

A warm and mellow sounding instrument

The first thing I noticed when playing a wooden tenor compared to the Yamaha plastic (keyed) tenor, was the significantly different sound. Many mistake this difference for "better" however both have appealing qualities. This pearwood recorder has a soft warm tone with no sharpness at all. The metal key is quiet and definitely doesn't flex or click (but the Yamaha one does) so the bottom C is very easy to sound and the very solid feeling key (that seems to be brass) does seem to help. Another difference (which makes it a bit easier to play than the Yamaha) are the slightly smaller finger holes. The high notes are easy to reach and still keep that soft quality. Overall, this recorder is everything I wished for from a wooden tenor recorder and is great for playing renaissance and baroque tunes.
