The majority of recorders are made from non-environmentally friendly plastics. To help combat this, Yamaha has produced an environmentally friendly material that sounds similar to ABS resin - Ecodear. Ecodear is the worlds first application of an environmentally friendly plant-based material used in a musical instrument. Manufactured by combining natural polylactic acid with ABS resin, Ecodear offers a mellow and centred tone with improved breath response. Similar to ABS resin recorders, the YRS401 recorder offers a durable build quality while only needing little maintenance. Offering a suitable amount of air resistance for easy control, the YRS401 features excellent intonation that is often associated with much more expensive models.
