Well, shoot, I thought there was a way to edit my post.
I have one more question with regard to buying a recorder.
Over at http://www.aswltd.com/ they professionally tune even plastics recorders that they sell. My question is, is this going to make a noticeable difference? I mean, I can get the same recorder for half the price at http://www.lazarsearlymusic.com/ but I’ll pay the extra if the tuning is really worth it.
