Dolmetsch One-Handed Recorders
Making music is something everyone should be able to enjoy. Since the 1930s Dolmetsch has produced recorders modified to accommodate missing fingers and missing hands. In 1997, we were approached by REACH and asked to develop models for this purpose but that could be made in greater volume. Now, those who can use one hand only, whether the left or the right, can play the recorder. Those who have been born with only one working hand, or who have lost the use of an arm following an accident, a stroke or polio or any other condition making two handed use impossible, can, with our special key-system, play descant (called soprano in the US) and treble (called alto in the US) recorders.
