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.

Zen-On G1A Bressan Alto Recorder

Very happy with this recorder, nice even tone and good intonation. Holes spacing good for smaller hands as no uncomfortably large stretch. Would recommend.

Zen-On G1A Bressan Alto Recorder 442

I write this review as an amateur recorder player. My very first impressions are really good. At first sight, this Alto looks very professional, I love its matt finish, it has a good touch. It is also very handy for my fingers, it can be played without effort. Sounds are clean and surprisingly easy to be produced in all registers. The quality of sound is a bit a matter of taste, personally I find it beautiul, it is a great pleasure for me to play on! I look forward to experiencing this instrument. Big thanks to the helpful team of the EMS.

Great recorder for easy living

Zen-On G1A Bressan Alto Recorder is a high quality ABS-resin recorder. It's tuning is almost perfect and it has sound near to fine wood recorders in all its registers. Way above the basic plastic models. It's a perfect recorder for those who need an easy living: no special care and no maintenance is required.
