Undoubtedly the best recorders are the hand-made ones produced by Arnold Dolmetsch, Ltd., of Beechside, Hasle-mere, Surrey. They are expensive but still cheap when com­pared with the prices of other wind instruments. Sooner or later the keen recorder player decides he must possess one or more of these instruments; generally, the decision is in favour of not just one but more.
Apart from these there are several other makers who produce worthwhile instruments. There is little point in giving the prices of any of them as they vary from year to year. Price lists of all the instruments are always available from good music shops or direct from the makers. In addition to the catalogue which can be obtained from Arnold Dolmetsch, Ltd., cata­logues from the following firms should also be consulted.
Both Schott and Co., Ltd., and Boosey and Hawkes, Ltd. whose addresses have already been given in the chapter on Music Apailable supply instruments as well as music.
Rose, Morris and Co., Ltd., of 79-85 Paul Street, London E.G.2. make the Dulcet Recorders.
The German firm of Johannes Adler, Marknenkirchen, Germany, make both cheap and expensive recorders with Eng­lish fingering.
