This is a great set of recorders. I am fairly new to playing the recorder but am a professional musician. I play oboe, English horn and clarinet. I decided I wanted to learn the recorder. So I purchased this set to start on.
I also purchased a Yamaha 300 series soprano and alto from the local music store. In general, the Aulos Soprano and Alto recorders are very similar to the Yamaha with wider tip openings so the Aulos clogs much less frequently.
Sopranino: very responsive little instrument with clear sound. easy to play.
Soprano: Good tone, great low register response. Response on high B and C could be better.
Alto: very good instrument so far. but still learning it. at least comparable to the Yamaha
Tenor: this instrument is probably the best out of the set. great tone, easy response across all registers.
Case: the case is good quality for the price. It is definitely a nice addition. the felt inserts around the instruments feel like not the highest quality. But you won't find better at this price. You can probably purchase the instruments independently for close to $200. But the case is well worth the added cost. Especially if you will travel with these instruments.
