I already have a soprano recorder (an angel one).
I would like to upgrade my recorder cause it's sound is a bit crappy.
Please tell me if you have any experience in any of these models:
Hohner (9509), Yamaha 24B, Yamaha 302B, Mollenhauher 505 swing.
Which one has the best sound?
Thanks in advance.

When i played the recorder i played the Yamaha and it sounds great and it's lasted me 7 years so i would go with one of those.

The Yamaha 300 series is generally regarded to be the best of the plastics by many. The 302B would be my suggestion, but Aulos also makes a very good plastic. I would stay away from the cheaper Yamaha plastics and stay with the 300 series.

I had really good luck with my Yamaha until I fell on
I cant remember the number it was..

I had to replace it with a Gill brand one The musical instrument store I go to was out of all other recorders but these ones and I didnt want to wait for they're shipment.. .. it works quite good.

I was quite surprised by my clear pink one I bought in a dollarstore (couldnt resist lol ) it works nearly as good as my yamaha did

I also have a dolmetch nova recorder. it's very mellow sounding. I had to fix an airleak on it when I got home, with some glue and it works good now..its actually quite nice sounding.

I am going to the instrument store today or early next week in hopes they have Yamaha's in. I will buy 2 lol
