Greetings all,

Well, after watching a ton of videos and going over early musical instrument sites (thank you, Dick, for the great references) and doing general research, I’ve narrowed my choices two plastic recorders:
* YRA-402 B Ecodear
* Zen-0n Bressan G1-A

The Yamaha is winning out at the moment, and I’m waiting for some call backs from store personnel to get more information, but so far this is it.

I am only concerned about the Yamaha’s feel; will it be slippery while playing? Apparently, it only comes in yellow-mellow color with no choice of texture——the color I care little about, but the feel is important.

Do any of you have any experience with either of these recorders? If so, I’d appreciate any input you have.

Thanks again.
