The YRS-402B is made from plant-derived Ecodear plastic - making this the world’s first application of environmentally-friendly plant based material in a musical instrument.
Improved instrument performance
The change in material has resulted in a mellow, centred tone that is similar to that of wooden recorders, plus improved breath response and high-register control.
Newly adopted plant-inspired colours
Bright colours invoking the image of plants such as corn have been used in the recorders and cases for the first time.
It has a slight resistance when you play for better breath control which gives greater tonal expressivity and projection.
Our new natural-fibre cloth cases do not contain or produce any hazardous substances when disposed of or burned.
