The eagerly awaited Zen-On plastic at baroque pitch (a=415) is now available!

This alto recorder is designed after originals by Bressan by Japanese makers Takeyama and Hirao. It has a rich sound with lots of overtones and is very responsive. Like the modern pitch version, it has a brand new finger hole design allowing undercutting.  

A perfect starting alto for anyone wanting to explore playing at baroque pitch or a great practice instrument!

415 pitch plastic treble recorder sounds fine

The sound is excellent and it was a joy to play comfortably with my friend's harpsichord and discover new texture to our music. The finger holes are different shapes to my wood treble and often smaller, so that is taking some practice to hit them accurately at speed.

Excellent value for the price

Zen-On’s A-415 Bressan treble is the woodiest-sounding non wood treble I have ever played. It’s the most affordable entry to satisfying historical-pitch playing that I know of. I no longer feel in the least deprived that a wooden instrument is economically far out of my reach. My only challenge was to get used to the longer right-hand stretch; a properly placed thumb rest did wonders. Another plus, is that I can safely back-pack this fine instrument on the bus in frigid Canadian winter weather; it doesn’t mind a bit!

Great instrument

I was looking for a good affordable recorder to start out with, and this was definitely the right choice. Easy to play, good intonation, easy to care for. Very pleased.
