Baroque Recorders (Sopranino through Tenor)
Baroque recorders are modeled after instruments from the first part of the 18th century, give or take. They typically have ornate turnings on the head and foot, and a highly tapered bore which gives them the technical facility and wide range required for music of Bach, Telemann, Vivaldi, and other composers of the High Baroque. Today, they are the most commonly used type of recorder with the most versatility. If you aren't sure what type of recorder you need, you probably need a Baroque instrument.
