All recorders of the same range may not necessary
sound alike. The timbre may vary slightly. It all depends on the materials,
the construction, the player, and even the temperature of the instrument.
A cold recorder will sound flat and one too warm
will sound slightly sharp in pitch. A good instrument should be at correct
pitch when the temperature is around 18 degrees Celcius, corresponding
to the same temperature at which it was originally tuned.
