OVERVIEW

Sweet-sounding recorder.

The ECODEAR recorder is made of plant-based Ecodear plastic, the first application of this material in a commercially available musical instrument. The material has a mellow, centered tone that is similar to that of wood recorders, but offers improved breath response and high-register control.

Ecodear plastic is a plant-based material created by combining polylactic acid derived from plants with other materials through an original Toray polymer alloy process, achieving characteristics that are similar to conventional oil-based resins. It is a safe material that has been used in home appliances, office equipment, and a variety of other items.

German and Baroque fingering systems
Yamaha offers a choice of either œGerman or œBaroque fingering systems on many models to accommodate local preferences and traditions. YRS-401: German system YRS-402B: Baroque system. Select from dropdown menu.

      Comments about Yamaha ECODEAR Soprano Recorder:

      I bought this soprano recorder for a young student , who was wondering why my recorder sounded so much better than his - mine was an older Yamaha. Now I am blown away by the quality of this new ECODEAR recorder. I intend to order one for myself AND for a good friend of mine as a Birthday present. Hopefully there will be an ECODEAR ALTO Recorder soon!

        This soprano gas a nice heft to it, and is slightly rounder in tone than the 300 series. The price is right.

              Comments about Yamaha ECODEAR Soprano Recorder:

              This new plastic compound gives the best plastic reorder sound that I have ever heard. It is one step closer to wood. It plays into the second octave easier than the series 300 recorders, which were very good. These have a focused tone and respond well for plastic. This is now my main practice instrument, and are perfect for outside performance, where heat and humidity are a concern. Best of the best plastic recorders!

                Standard fingering C4 through Eb7. Appears to be molded/tooled identically with the Yamaha YRS314B soprano baroque recorder.

                    I first learned music on a recorder and then played trumpet all the way through school. Wanted to pick up an instrument once I retired and after hearing on YouTube some of the great things one can do on such a simple instrument, I was hooked. It's fun relearning the instrument.
