The Eagle recorder (you can see one being played by Michala Petri in Sarah Jeffery’s interview video with her) would be my pick for a “modern” recorder. It is pretty expensive, but very high quality, from what I have read. It’s not amplified, but it adds notes to the regular recorder range, and is very loud, from what I have read. The Elody strikes me as simply an amplified mid-priced recorder with a high price.
Mollenhouer produces the “Modern alto”, which the same concept as the Eagle for half the price or less. Of course the quality is not the same as the hand-made Eagle, but most amateur players cannot spend more than 2000 $ on a recorder.
