When most people think of the recorder, an elementary classroom setting usually springs to mind - after all, the recorder is used often by music educators for teaching music to youngsters. With that being said, the recorder was a very popular instrument during the Baroque Period, and many well-known bands used the recorder as well, including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Barenaked Ladies. In this section, you'll discover recorders for every skill level and budget. From Hohner and Lyons to Yamaha and Nuvo, all the most respected brands are here and many of these models just happen to be top sellers.
