After all, we now have flute, clarinet, bassoon and oboe threads! And the recorder is a great instrument!

Continuing(Ish!) from the CISD discussion, What wood do you have your recorders in? And why? (I think thats were we got to anyhow laugh.gif )

My first three wooden recorders were inherited: a bubinga wood treble and palisander wood descant and treble.

Then I saw a pearwood descant listed among the toys on e-bay, and bought that.

Then I tried out a cherrywood tenor, fell in love with the sound and feel of it, and bought that.

er...that's it...for now...

Bear in mind that at the time I inherited the first ones, I had three plastic recorders - a descant, a treble and a sopranino all of which I'd had from childhood.

But somehow since then, more plastic recorders have got bought too....nine of them.... ph34r.gif

I've got a 302 tenor which works beautifully, and a 302 treble which works beautifully when it doesn't start 'gumming up', which it always seems to want to do after a while...

The only recorders I have at the moment are an Aulos Descant and Sopranino, and the bane of my parents life they are too!

I have a pearwood descant (my treble, tenor and bass are plastic - Aulos, Dolmetsch and Woodnote respectively).
During this week I have a visit to the London Recorder Centre and I'm going to get a garklein because they are too ikkle to resist. I was going to get the Aulos plastic one...but I think if I'm buying it for the beautiful loveliness, I should buy a wooden one. They have a pearwood one listed on the website...
My eventual aim is to have the treble and tenor in pearwood in the same range as my existing descant. It's the Dolmetsch Academy range so nothing too fabulous, just a decent wooden recorder. I figure that by the time I'm ready for something fantabulous like a handmade, I'll be able to afford it, ha ha ha! But in the meantime I shall get myself something good-but-affordable!
The treble may happen soon as I expect after the shopping trip my husband will talk me in to making the purchase (especially as Dolmetsch now have on their website that online purchasing is 'coming soon).

I know there is absolutely no need for the woods or the range to match, I'm just deeply attracted to the idea rolleyes.gif Of course, it might all change once I have the chance to try some out...intellectually, I'm attracted to boxwood as the 'traditional' recorder wood, but I've never knowingly heard it. I do sense this shopping trip could be disasterous in an absolutely wonderful way biggrin.gif
