Background

Back in November 2020, while taking out my Monopoly Singapore Edition which I just purchased at Popular Bookstore from the bag, I received a flyer that was put inside the bag. The flyer shows some items that were on sale and one item that interests me was the Yamaha YRS-23 Soprano Recorder. It brings back memories of me in my younger days playing the recorder, which we were being taught in school. Since it only cost SGD 5.50, I decided to go back to Popular Bookstore to purchase one to play.

The Product

The Yamaha YRS-23 Soprano Recorder comes in off white color and is made of plastic. It is made in Indonesia. Like any other modern recorder, it is made out of 3 parts, the head joint, the middle joint, and the foot joint. It also comes with a cotton case bag which is made in India to cover/protect the recorder, and a system fingering chart to learn how to play the notes.

Here are some pictures that I have taken to show how the product looks like:

To use, simply put your mouth onto the mouthpiece and start blowing to make a sound! Also, use the system fingering chart provided to learn how to play the notes on the recorder.
