Hi! This is literally a future Dream. (For now my tenor is a resin YamHa.) But I’m thinking that one day I’d like either an Adris Dream tenor or a Moeck Rottenburgh. I LOVE the look of the Aris Dream, and the fact it is a Renaissance tenor.
Any thoughts on the difference in sound or tone quality?

Don’t mean to be overly pedantic, but strictly it’s “sort of like a Renaissance tenor”. It has the extended range of a transitional instrument and more-or-less baroque fingering while the wide bore does give it a sound closer to a renaissance instrument. There is excellent information about this on Philippe Bolton’s website if you have not seen it: http://www.flute-a-bec.com/evolutionpercegb.html. Likewise, Sarah Jeffery covers this in her intro to renaissance recorders, and recommends the Dream as a good starting point. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd39KAbPvpE – the section covering the Dream starts at about 6:45.
