    I like the sound of the bigger instruments and I’ve seen a few youtube videos featuring this keyless model and from what I’ve heard it has a nice, mellow tone. I might look into getting one once I have the funds. Anyone on here play it?
    I have no idea if my hands are average or large but I can reach a 10th on piano, and this instrument is quoted as being good for those with smallish hands, so I should have no trouble with it.

    Yes I have one it’s really nice! It does have a nice mellow tone and sounds very “majestic” for some reason but to me each size has its own beauty.
    The size for me is good I have the keyless one also. But I have been told I have long fingers so…not too sure!

    When it’s in its case it looks like a giant pencil case!

    Yep it’s the same…It is quite a beast! Enjoy! I love playing greensleves on it starting in G…It just sounds regal, majestic

    Been trying out just now…I’m surprised how good it sounds up to very last note on the high registers! I can hit that high C and D no problems!

    Btw out of curiosity…Who is in charge on this here forum? Any admins or presidents etc? It’s awful quiet compared to the chromatic harmonica forum I’m on and I’m sure recorder is just as popular?

    Yes it is very quiet on here. So is the woodwind Forum I joined.
    As for this tenor. First impressions, its too big for my hands. And this is designed for smaller hands? My hands aren’t small. I can span a 10th on piano but I struggle with this tenor. Should have got the alto?

    Well It takes practise that’s for sure. T was quite a stretch for my hands too at first but fingers get used to it and have a memory of their own. Now they just sit nicely automatically. Should have got the alto? Well each one has its beauties….as Recorder players if we mean to play alot of written music ( which is what I aim for) we tend to get them all to be honest…at least the main 3 I got ( descant, treble and tenor) I do plan to get the sopranino and gurklein too one day and then I’m moving on to wooden slowly.
    But yes as far as size goes the yamahah I’ve see. With the button is longer.
    But honestly just practise and the fingers do stretch. I used to find the tenor felt like it was slipping down too but that’s seems to have gone also. Enjoy!
