Mollenhauer Dream Soprano Recorder Red Glitter Double Holes

11 reviews
£23.75 excluding VAT (UK Export Price)

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.

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.

Perfect 'next step'

I own a Mollenhauer Dream Alto wooden recorder, but have been slowly also trying to learn descant as well, using an old Aulos that belonged to my daughter many years ago. It was fine for learning notes and fingering initially, but tone etc was poor. Hence the Mollenhauer Dream Soprano. Couldn't justify going for the wood version just yet, but the plastic one is great. Good tone, similar style (ie renaissance) to my Alto, and feels good to play. Highest notes took a day or so to get cleanly, as the larger holes do require more careful finger positioning, but easily achieved with practice. For the price, you can't go wrong. Was a little concerned about the 'glittery' red description before I bought it, but in reality it's quite subdued and actually looks quite good - although I think I would have probably preferred a more normal wood-like finish if there had been a choice... Otherwise, would definitely recommend. Rapid delivery from EMS.

I was looking for a plastic recorder with a difference, and I am very glad I bought this one. It doesn't look like one, and sounds beautiful. The holes size and spacing is too big for my six year old, so I have - for the time being - the delight to use it to teach her the basics as well.

Mollenhauer Red Glitter

A friend has one and I liked the tone and volume for playing with our Morris side....however, although I will persist, I found it it very slippery to hold and no better at getting top A than your £5.50 own brand I bought four years ago. I hoped for top B for some folk tunes but that seems impossible. Is it really easier for beginners/children with such large holes?

complements my pearwood one

The practical robustness of this ABS-plastic one handles the out and about with our Morris side over here in Geraldine New Zealand/Aotearoa as well as providing sound qualities approaching my wooden model. I've rated it for the practical instrument it is. And of course the gold and red suites our Fiery Peak side's colours!
