The Aulos 211A tenor recorder is part of the well-known and popular 'Robin' range which includes the 205A soprano and 209B alto recorders. The instrument is produced using dark brown ABS resin which is hard wearing and of a very consistent quality. The instrument is a little smaller than some tenor recorders which makes it lighter than other. This coupled with finger holes which are less widely spaced make it the ideal model for the younger player - it is lighter and suits smaller hands. The instrument plays in the key of C and has a range from middle C to the D two octaves above that. It is supplied with a fitted leatherette bag along with a very detailed and useful fingering chart. It also comes with joint grease and a cleaning rod to keep the recorder in tip top condition. The tenor recorder produces a richer, deeper tone than the soprano version and because of this model's lightweight design it is the ideal instrument to progress to for the younger student.Read more on AmazonDetails

The bad: It's easier to reach on the Yamaha 300 tenor that I used for a while. My middle three fingers can stretch out to 5". My first finger is 6 inches wide and 7 inches long. I could do it with the Yamaha, but it was tiring. I find the low C to be a little difficult. It probably depends on things like the humidity and the condition of my skin, but sometimes I need more force to get a good seal or an awkward twist on the right wrist or elbow. I like the sound of the middle part of the range. The instrument is easy to play there. It's not a problem up through high G. The price I paid was reasonable. The bad. The low C has a thin and weak tone that I don't like. It might be a compromise from having a short instrument. The Aulos has a double hole, but the Yamaha that I used had a key for the low C/C#. I like the Au...
