Thread Name: Recorders type/range?
Subject: RE: Recorders type/range?
Anon from Whitby quoted by Mo had a point in that are a lot of truly crappy old wooden descant recorders around, and ten quid would get you something very much better in plastic from Aulos or Yamaha.

But, there are good modern wooden recorders under 100 quid. The Moeck "School" series is one (so, probably, is their "Rondo" series, I haven't tried one). And the all-wood Mollenhauer "Dream" recorder is ideal for folk playing and costs 75 quid from Saunders (maybe not the cheapest but I like their attitude so that's where most of my more expensive recorders have come from).
