Soprano Wooden Recorders

The Beauty of Natural Wood

Many players insist on the tonal qualities of natural wood. When it has been specially seasoned, natural wood creates a tone of great depth; a tone that is warm, glowing, alive. Yamaha offers a complete line-up of wooden recorders, from our inexpensive 40 series to handmade models that will satisfy the most demanding soloist. They are available in a variety of woods for subtle sound differences.


The YRS-61 is made from Castellowood, a well established traditional material for recorders. It is characterized by a soft and natural tone reminiscent of Baroque era. System: Baroque, Material: Castellowood


Kingwood gives the YRS-62 a clear strong and exciting sound with ample harmonics to color the broad tone. System: Baroque, Material: Kingwood
