“Plastic recorders are definitely NOT only for children. Many professional players use plastic instruments for practice, because they don’t require maintenance and can be played for hours and everybody says that a good plastic recorder is better than a cheap wooden one.
Buying a second hand recorder may be dangerous if you’re not expert enough to check its conditions.[/quote]
I completely agree that they are not only for children. I have just never seen any quality plastic (resin) recorders anywhere around where I live. I would like to see some “in person” to see if I like them or not. I would LOVE to go to a recorder store like Sarah Jeffery has in her one video.
