Loudest recorder?

Hello I have a soprano,alt and tenor recorder and I was wondering which recorder is loudest of all recorders??

Im thinking it is sopranino or soprano.

You really would have to define "loud." If you're just talking in terms of decibels, probably all can be played equally as loud. However, if you're talking about most piercing -- i.e. you can hear it above everything else -- it's going to be a high soprano. This is the reason why you can generally hear one or two piccolo players above the 50 other members of the band.

The garklein is generally the most annoying... ;-)
