Yamaha YRA-28 BIII

Alto Recorder

YAMAHA-Flutes of the 20 series are developed for the beginner level. They offer ideal air resistance to make controlling the tone easier. The precise intonation normally is only available on more expensive instruments. Even if other plastic recorders look similar, they can not compete with Yamaha's ABS recorders. The 20 series ist easily playable in the full range: F - C''' and is especially well suitet for beginner level players.

A most remarkable instrument for it's price.

"Swanny"., 29.05.2013
I have been playing the recorder since prep. school and have always loved it's flexibility and ease of expression; (saxaphones are equally expressive, but it's a damn' sight more difficult to put your 'all' into a piece of music on one than on a recorder !)

Originally, I came to 'THOMANN' simply because I wanted a reasonably priced white recorder, (my 'Aulos' is brown), and the Yamaha YRA-28 BIII was exactly what I had in mind. However, on receipt I was most pleasantly surprised by the weight of the instrument and by the resultant resonance.

I'd already imbued my Alto 'Aulos' with a much more 'breathy' tone by the simple expedient of inserting a twisted plastic-coated 'bag-tie' into the mouthpiece until the sound was 'tailored' to my liking, (try it - you'll be pleasantly surprised ..), and did the same to the Yamaha; I was most impressed - with it's heavier, more resonant body the resultant tone easily matched my favourite wooden recorder, (which I'm reluctant to use as much as I'd like because it absorbs moisture too readily), and I therefore have to admit that my faithful 'Aulos' has thus been consigned to the study bookshelf in favour of the Yamaha.

If you're thinking of buying one of these much-underrated instruments please do -a really good alto recorder to get you started, (and one that WILL allow you to really put your 'self' into what you're playing), is this Yamaha.

(P.S. don't buy a descant recorder of ANY make - I've come to feel over many years that these little beggars whose pitch is neither as piercingly 'to the fore' as a sopranino or as expressive as an alto is the chief reason why children who learn on one at school become quickly convinved that all recorders are wailing instruments of torture !) regards, "Swanny".

round thing and price unbeatable

JoLe, 23.10.2009
We have been using these instruments in the ensemble game for years. With the stable intonation and good response in extreme situations, there is nothing comparable at this price. Since the whole family of the Yamaha recorders are matched in the intonation and mood, you get good sound results despite the participation of lay players in the ensemble. And this is a very important criterion for feeling recorder music as a nice and not annoying and shrill.

Now to the material: Of course, plastic does not have sound qualities. For this reason, this alto recorder is not recommended as a soloist. For this the sound is too unattractive. But, as a matter of fact, one goes to the area of ??subjective taste. This is also the case with regard to appearance. Wood is wood. On the other hand, the plastic used is very high-quality and does not age, the flute "weathered" not. Only outside does it slowly (with me 20 years).
