I agree that you get what you pay for and that the Bernolin is a significant step up from standard injection molded plastic instruments. I have a black and a white alto Bernolin 442, and a black soprano 442.
However, I believe that Eileen asked about how well Bernolins blend with an ensemble. I have not used my Bernolins for any ensemble playing (because I don’t do any), but I can say that while the Bernolin is richer and fuller sounding than typical plastic recorders, it really isn’t any louder or more penetrating. So I would think that it would blend OK with a ensemble.
