Zen On G1A a=415 Bressan Alto Recorder

by Zen-On
3 reviews

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!

Nice sound (especially for a plastic recorder). High notes good responsive. I like the 415 pitch. Very happy. Thanks for EMS quick service.

Lovely instrument plays beautifully and is responsive in all registers. Disappointed there was no thumb rest but I found one which fitted. It's great for playing all the solo repertoire like Bach and Telemann. The only thing I'd say is of course with it being 415 instead of the standard 442 limits you to playing with others but saying that playing 415 produces more overtones and the sound is richer so it's sublime playing Bach's partitas or Telemann's fantasias. Lovely case too.

The Zen On Bressan is by far the best and most responsive plastic recorder I have ever played. It has an excellent and full sound throughout the compass of the instrument and at A 415 is a long awaited treasure to recorder players. Let's hope they are working on a voice flute which would be perfect? As always EMS has been reliable and professional. Thank you!
