    Hi! This is literally a future Dream. (For now my tenor is a resin YamHa.) But I’m thinking that one day I’d like either an Adris Dream tenor or a Moeck Rottenburgh. I LOVE the look of the Aris Dream, and the fact it is a Renaissance tenor.

    Any thoughts on the difference in sound or tone quality?

    Thank you!

    I’ve not tried one but I’ve been informed they are much louder because of the wide bore, so good for outdoor playing.

    You don't stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing.

    Thanks! Now considering a Voice Flute, since it is a little shorter and would be easier for small hands. 👍🏼🎶

    Don’t mean to be overly pedantic, but strictly it’s “sort of like a Renaissance tenor”. It has the extended range of a transitional instrument and more-or-less baroque fingering while the wide bore does give it a sound closer to a renaissance instrument. There is excellent information about this on Philippe Bolton’s website if you have not seen it: http://www.flute-a-bec.com/evolutionpercegb.html. Likewise, Sarah Jeffery covers this in her intro to renaissance recorders, and recommends the Dream as a good starting point. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd39KAbPvpE – the section covering the Dream starts at about 6:45.
