Tenor Recorder

Aulos 211A Tenor Recorder – Brown and White. A Tenor recorder (as opposed to a ‘tenner’ recorder!) is lower in pitch; the difference is that all holes closed on the alto produces an “F” while all holes closed on the soprano is “C.” This holds true throughout the recorder family, with tenor (in “C”) and bass (in “F”) being the family members most likely to be required for SATB or larger ensemble music. This new 211A model is lighter in weight and smoother in playing at the higher register. Narrow mouthpiece, stream-lined shape, smaller and less widely spaced finger holes provide attractive appearance and make this instrument very suitable for the smaller hand, as well as those looking to add texture and range to their performance.

Aulos 511B Tenor Recorder – Brown and White. The 500 series is more faithful to historic designs and provides players with an inexpensive instrument of highly uniform quality, good intonation and response.

The recorder has a detachable thumb rest to make holding the instrument comfortable for the player and comes in a simulated leather bag. The recorder is supplied with a cleaning rod and fingering chart.
