The ECODEAR recorder is made of plant-based Ecodear plastic, the first application of this material in a commercially available musical instrument. The material has a mellow, centered tone that is similar to that of wood recorders, but offers improved breath response and high-register control.
Ecodear plastic is a plant-based material created by combining polylactic acid derived from plants with other materials through an original Toray polymer alloy process, achieving characteristics that are similar to conventional oil-based resins. It is a safe material that has been used in home appliances, office equipment, and a variety of other items.
