SInce Ken brought up the Ecodear, I’ll just add this info to what he said. There are actually TWO models of the Ecodear alto. The model 402B Ecodear, which is the one everyone in the USA has, has a VERY narrow windway, which gives it a unique, muted, mellow tone, which is unlike any plastic recorder I have ever heard. It’s OK if you like that sound.
If you want an Ecodear model that is the same as the 302B, you have to get the Ecodear model 48B (which is not available in the USA). It has the same windway and everything else as the 302B, except for the body color (and different plastic material). BOTH models are available in the UK:
