Comments from Shigeharu Hirao and Hiroyuki Takeyama

Recorders have undergone many improvements over a long period of time since the Renaissance, through the Baroque era, when they attained their present form. Baroque original instruments, including and represented by Bressan's, are regarded as the most exquisite intruments even today and that is our opinion too. This means that for this model G-1A, how faithfully we reproduce the original is the key aim. In order to acheive this aim, the degree of perfection and integrity of the original recorder that we based its design on are the vital factors - above all, it has to have a stable sound.

We believe that this newly developed G-1A is the best modern Bressan model that we can hope for, with all our experience and knowledge poured into it.

Two Zen-On Bressan Alto recorders; one at A:440, and one at A:415

I am very pleased with these recorders. They sound good, and they are easy to play; even the highest notes. They need warming to avoid condensation. I’ve had one problem with the low pitch instrument, in that after playing for about an hour and a half I couldn’t separate the top joint from the middle section, even after leaving it for several hours. However by the next morning I could manage to separate them. A small ****** is the difficulty in opening the grease container; I had to use my teeth!
