Here's our 2012 listing of recorder music with play-along CD

Courtly Music Unlimited proudly announces that we now offer the complete line of Mollenhauer recorders.

As you look for the best in quality and price we offer a value added service that I consider an important one. Elaine personally refines the tuning of all wooden recorders valued over $75.00. She has been doing this for our customers since we opened our doors in 1988. She learned her skills from Alec Loretto, a well know recorder maker from New Zealand. It simply makes a difference. I hope you consider us when making a purchase. We offer competitive pricing on recorders and expert advice on music. If you see a lower price offered by any American Recorder Society Business member this holiday season just let us know and we will strive to match it.

Looking for Yamaha plastic recorders? We have some of the best prices around. We also offer a Yamaha tenor with two added keys for the middle joint at a very affordable price.

For those who already have recorders, we have 4 peg (photo) and 5 peg (photo) recorder stands made of solid oak with solid oak and brass dowels. The stands have a beautiful streamline design. Our bass recorder floor rest has a single peg (photo). The perfect gift that makes playing the bass more comfortable. A fresh shipment of pegs is expected shortly.

In stock and ready to go

Denner - Bass in f

Magnificent and expressive Baroque design with carefully crafted details

Strong sound with clear articulation - for consorts, larger ensembles and recorder orchestras.

Easy-to-speak high register - this bass is also convincing as a solo instrument. Try out Baroque sonatas or alto recorder duets with this instrument; its warm, deep sound lends them a unique charm.

Head joint designed to be blown directly - hidden under the removable cap is an ergonomically designed mouthpiece that helps make direct blowing of the instrument more comfortable.

Wood: pearwood with natural oil finish

5506 - $1350.00


The joy of ensemble playing Versatile, reliable with an homogenous sound, made of pearwood

Pleasantly clear sound - speaks easily.

Resilient & reliable - due to the choice of wood & robust, practical design.

Relaxed holding position - due to the well-balanced weight distribution, light construction and slender, economical design.

Comfort Tenor - makes playing easy: two additional keys reduces the stretch between fingers. The bent neck brings the instrument close to the body relieving stress on the arms. Complete with thumbrest & neck strap.
