On a Friday the school sends home a letter that says our kids are going to be learning the recorder and they need to bring one to school... on Monday.I crisis ordered this bad boy. Turns out there's options for recorders. It's been a minute since I played the recorder in grade school and I had no idea what I was shopping for. This is it

I bought the three pack for myself and my children. I was surprised by how great they sounded. I like that you can tune them on the neck. It was really easy to pick up and play. I am able to play this by ear using this little recorder. The only issues I have is the transparency makes it so you see all the condensation. The neck get

This is a fantastic recorder for the price. It's bascially very similar to major brands like Yamaha, but for a little less. This will work for school kids or for anyone who wants an interesting music making instrument. I'm going to give it some more practice and see if I can't make a song with this little instrument!Don't forget, if you

My family is very diverse and everyone is challenged to learn a new instrument. We have selected inexpensive but not cheaply made ones to begin.

I did my homework, and looked at many different chimes and Tibetan singing bowls. I am trying to teach myself to meditate, and to conquer my almost crippling anxiety. I had formed a vague idea that listening to a pure, resonating note from a chime might be a good way to center my mind and to bring my mind back when it tends to wander.

Took a risk when I purchased this because it hadn't been reviewed. So glad I did. I own a Yamaha 402b Ecodear, a yamaha 314B, and a Hohner Pearwood. This is like playing a piece of heaven. The tone is mellow and rich. Just such a joy to play. I find it hard to believe this quality for under 20 bucks! The case is plastic, nothing

Most of us learn to play recorder on inexpensive plastic instruments. There is nothing wrong with that. Frankly some them (such as Eastar's own) sound and play amazingly well. -Far better than the plastic instruments of not too many years ago. But that said, there is nothing like the sound and feel of a well crafted wooden recorder.

So, I play recorder, and I own several mid-range ones (those cost in the hundreds, whereas pro, handmade instruments can cost well into the thousands), as well as a Yamaha Ecodear and Aulos recorders (costs around $30 each), and I've tested the wood Hohner one. Given that, for a bit over $20, getting a wood recorder that actually plays

- Some really positive stuff -* This is a full brass trumpet, not one of the cheapie plastic trumpets that cost as much or more. It looks gorgeous, the finish is smooth and bright and polished to a mirror finish. I don't know how to tell if it's thick and will last, but my son's Yamaha trumpet has dulled over the years of use and abuse

I must admit for the price I was extremely skeptical, but with the abundance of positive reviews I ordered this horn. I am very positively impressed. Upon unboxing, I very closely examined the horn; the plating and finish is flawless. The slides are smooth, as are the valves. I oiled the valves, and I put the horn to the test. Valve

I've been playing trumpet nearly 3 years now...Got a good deal on a used Bach Stradovarius trumpet...for $2,000. I've played piano for 40 years so I'm pretty musical, but I know it's easier to learn on a good instrument...and it's good to have an instrument you can take pride in. (in a humble way).

I broke this bad boy out at a Little League championship game. Birds dropped dead from the sky. I can't even transport it.

I am giving this a 5 star review in protest. I HATE recorders. I would NEVER buy one voluntarily. However, apparently my daughter's new school uses them as part of the music program from grades 3-5.

My husband has been playing trumpet for 15 years. He has owned a Bach, several student models, and even a Holton model.

There is only one reason to give it five stars: it is a hundred-dollar instrument, and I have some deep philosophical objections to them. That said, this is as good as a hundred-dollar instrument can be. No, it is better than you should expect. It's a three-hundred dollar instrument masquerading as a hundred-dollar instrument.What it

As with any recorder, this one is just irritating enough to get the job done. My daughter loves it and it is getting her through the recorder phase in school. This recorder, much like any other "professional" recorder, suggests to a child that they have the potential to be a professional recorder player one day in their future

This is a great recorder. We just use it at home for fun. I hope to eventually teach my children how to play something on it but for now they just pretend to know what they are doing and have a blast. It comes in a nice little bag with some sort of cleaning rod. I should probably read the directions on how to use that but just the fact

I did a lot of research on tongue drums before purchasing this one. For the price, the sound is very nice and sounds like the videos posted by people who reviewed it.
