I chewed really hard on all my soprano and sopranino recorders. I of course also didn't spare those that i borrowed from school. I remember gnawing hard on the school's alto and bass recorders and then left them with teethmarks and all for the next kid!
haha. just a habit Ms Teacher i guess that i never outgrew. I would still bite on one if i ever did lay hands on one! They are just too irresistable!
I think i gave one of my better recorders to a church and the other cheapo one, i kind of smashed it against a tree after trying to burn the other end of it in the fireplace!
