Good quality for the price.

Comments about Yamaha YRN-22B Sopranino Recorder with Baroque Fingering:

Along with some minor intonation problems cited by other purchasers, I personally had some difficulty adapting my medium-large hands to the diminutive size of the sopranino recorder. Nevertheless, I think the manufacturing quality is commensurate with other of the lower end Yamaha recorders, which I consider to be "okay" to "good," and appropriate for the pricing (and vice versa). This might not be the easiest of the recorder family on which to start out, but I would definitely consider it for a child or older student with exceptionally small hands. I was surprised at the weight and thickness of the resin used in the sopranino, but the sound is pretty good, now that i've overcome some of my own clumsiness.

Decent, not perfect

Comments about Yamaha YRN-22B Sopranino Recorder with Baroque Fingering:

This is not a perfect instrument. It has problems, but it still manages to work. The most glaring issue is the single hole for low F. This makes low F# nearly impossible to play with any sort of accuracy, since you have to half- hole. Then there is the response issue with low G#. The hole for it is too small, and playing that note with any vibrato or enthusiasm is nearly impossible without the recorder jumping up an octave. Other than that, it's a fine instrument. The tone is serviceable. It's a little harsh for my taste, but sometimes the music needs that kind of sound for it to work. It is a good instrument for introducing young students to fingerings for F recorders, especially if their hands are too small for an alto. If you're looking for a first sopranino, you aren't going to find anything cheaper than this that plays this well. It's a responsive instrument, and besides the two lowest accidentals (which you only need once in a while anyways), it does what you want it to. The profile is much more plain and modern than the 20 series soprano and alto, and the ergonomics are fine. It comes in two pieces, meaning that the lowest hole cannot be adjusted, but only those with extremely small hands would have trouble with this. However, if you want a sweeter sound, the YRN 302 or Aulos 509 sopranino are your best bet.
