For those who have trouble with finger stretches when playing the tenor:

Many players find it difficult to reach all the holes when playing tenor, especially for the smallest 2 fingers of the right hand. There is quite a bit of variation in finger hole position from one maker to another, and from one model to another. The chart below was prepared to try and show which ones will be easier. There are several factors involved: the distance between the holes is important, but another significant factor is whether the recorder is straight or has a bent head ("knick"). Knick tenors allow the right hand to hold the recorder in a higher position - the hand is not stretching down so far and consequently a spacing that may actually be a little wider will still feel easier to reach on a knick instrument. In this chart the weights shown are a guide only - weight can vary from model to model depending on which wood has been used.

A large range of tenor recorders made in a beautiful range of woods including pear, plum, satinwood, olive, rose, palisander, grenadilla, boxwood and cherrywood. Orpheus Music stocks tenor recorders from a variety of makers including Mollenhauer Recorders from Germany, Kung Recorders from Switzerland, Dolmetch Recorders from England, and Aulos Recorders and Zen-on Recorders from Japan. T  The tenor is a great ensemble instrument as well as a favoured recorder for contemporary compositions.
