The easiest option would be to buy an inexpensive plastic recorder. One of the more popular manufacturers is Yamaha. Musical instruments and equipment of this brand can often be found in the professional musical environment. An alternative option is to look for a combined recorder with a plastic mouthpiece and a wooden body. A completely wooden instrument is the most expensive. It is whimsical in travel and climate change, but produces the clearest sound. A set of several flutes of different registers, for example from Stagg, is an expensive undertaking. If there is no need for a whole set, you should pay attention to a single item.
