Renaissance  and Medieval Recorders

Here is a listing of our best renaissance and medieval style soprano, alto, tenor and bass recorders for sale. These instruments are designed with a wide, slightly conical bore, which facilitates the production of strong low notes and helps the instrument produce tones with strong fundamentals, which helps them blend well in 15th and 16th century consorts for 2-5 recorders.  All instruments, new and used, are sold with a 7-day trial period. We want you to be satisfied with your purchase.
