Soprano recorders (sometimes called descant recorders) are the most popular recorder instruments sold. They are widely used to teach music in schools. But they are not just a children’s instrument, and there is much serious music written for soprano recorder. When playing with recorder consorts or groups, often the soprano carries the melody.
Recorders are in C so they use the C fingering. We can provide recorders in modern pitch (currently a=442) and in Baroque pitch (a=415).
We carry soprano recorders from Kung, Moeck and Mollenhauer. There is a separate section for school, or child beginner, sopranos. For a serious adult beginner, you might also consider the Moeck Flauto Rondo, the Kung Studio recorders, and the Mollenhauer Adri's Dream recorder, all of which are a step up from school recorders and a good starting point for a serious learner.
Soprano recorders for experienced players
Sopranos for more experienced players come in a wider range of woods, and are generally 3-piece rather than 2-piece instruments, allowing for adjustment of the position of the lower holes. There is a range of prices – partly to do with the wood, partly to do with the quality of manufacture.
