Zen - On

Zen-On, established 1931 in Japan, makes top quality recorders of wood and ABS at reasonable prices. They enjoy the highest reputation for quality. 

Wooden Models - Bass and Tenor: These Baroque-styled recorders are made of the  best seasoned Japanese cherrywood, cut and finished to the finest tolerance by master craftsmen. Both beautifully grained recorders are surprisingly light and produce clear and brilliant tones. Each instrument is produced on an individual basis with a resonant and full tone throughout the whole range. 

Long years of reseach and craftsmanship have resulted in this direct-blow Bass recorder. A soft touch and  balanced sound enable even beginners to use this instrument without difficulty. Made in three sections with two keys in the middle and two keys for low -F-F#- and direct blow mouthpiece.

The Tenor features quality intonation and a fully resonant but serene tone throughout the whole range of the recorder. Its warm, rich sound is essential for the recorder ensemble. Made in three sections with  two keys for low -C-C#-.

New Wooden Soprano and Alto three-section Baroque recorders made of Brazilian Boxwood. "State of the Art" models of very high quality.

All prices include a carrying case, Susato thumbrest, joint grease and fingering chart. The Tenor comes with a hard case, the Bass price includes a hard case and neck strap.

New Bressan Polymer Models! Two Alto models with undercut tone-holes, (one at low a=415Hz pitch, the other at a=442Hz):
