Ever since I heard about Yamaha's new PLA plant-based resin plastic recorder I had to have one, it's more dense and a little heavier but best of all it has a wonderful smooth sound frankly I can't tell the difference between it and my Mollenhauer; with sound this good I think I'll retire my Mollenhauer!

I've been considering a plastic alto and Yamaha is the one I'd buy. According to the advertisment I watched on YouTube, the new material is 30% plant based. I tend to believe it's largely sales hype.

I think you will find the PLA resin a little different than the ABS both are durable but the plant-based resin is more stiff more dense and heavier, it does create a far better sound !
I would rather not use names but a well-known Scandinavian baroque player use the Yamaha Ecodear Alto in latest CD another well known European player use his Ecodear to produce his latest CD when asked why he didn't use wood he stated frankly it has a good sound and it's convenient; try one and see they're very reasonably priced !

Maybe if it is eventually offered in the tenor. I changed my mind about getting an alto, as I really don't care for baroque music. I play a Yamaha tenor exclusively.

Hi Volatile,
I have a Aulos
Alto top model that I bought brand-new and played for about 5 minutes I like its sound but unfortunately I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and the little finger stretch is just a little too much I hate to see an instrument sit and not ever being used if you would like to have I'll be glad to ship it to you ? markga58@ gmail.com

I'm 71 and recently switched from clarinet ( not enough breath support due to a condition called kyphosis ( curved spine) to a Yamaha plastic tenor with added 3 & 4 hole keys. I can't stretch on a keyless one. The keys are by Susato , and are probably considered low budget compared to Lazar's pricey (to me) ones- which I'm saving for. I don't and probably will never play with others. I've done a lot of research and would not consider a tenor recorder costing less than $1500-2000. All of the music I have is for a C recorder. Having said all that, what model is the Aulos and price ? Email : randallwlls@gmail.com

Aulos 309A Auto resin recorder while it does have a nice tone it's not a handmade Frederick Von Huene !
There is no cost.

The gift of the Aulos 309a from MGA is starting to grow on me. The right pinky is a stretch, bit I can manage it. Have been learning chromatic scale and F & C scales about 15- 20 min a day. Only problem I'm having is blowing a G# in the 3rd octave. Have tried 5 alternate fingerings to no avail. Any suggestions ?

You may have to get use to the curved Wind Way and articulation, be sure you are making a good seal with 123 & half thumb !
