Differences between two-joint and three-joint recorders
There are recorders that are comprised of bodies split into two joints, and also instruments that are split into three joints. On a three-joint recorder, the foot joint can be rotated, offering the advantage of being able to adjust this section to reposition the tone hole so that it can be more easily reached by the little finger of the right hand.
