But, still– the Bernolin resin instruments *are* cheaper. If people are saying they’re the equivalent of a wooden recorder costing $1000, yet they cost less than $500… I would say that’s a significant discount for materials! Yes, you can buy a cheaper recorder in wood, but will it sound as nice?
And again, some people will see plastic as “cheap” with reduced value, and others will see it as “low-maintenance/low-risk” which adds value in their mind.
