Recorder Models

If you have arrived on this page as a result of trying to identify or value an unknown recorder you should have a look at my comments regarding used (second-hand) recorders. Here is a link that will open a new page. But... Do check this page out while you are here!

My lists use numbers and words to identify and describe the instruments. I have produced this page because novices often latch on to an entirely incorrect interpretation of descriptions. Some of the more general terms feature in my glossary list. I discuss the more troublesome issues here.

Recorder... An end blown 'whistle' flute, with thumbhole and seven finger holes, usually with the lowest two finger positions made as a pair of small holes.


'Fancy' Names
