This Recorder is crafted from top quality Rosewood for a rich full tone with abundant overtones. It is capable of both strong and delicate performance.
Many players insist on the tonal questions of natural wood. When it has been specially seasoned, natural wood creates a tone of great depth; a tone that is warm, glowing, alive. Yamaha offers a complete line-up of wooden recorders, from our inexpensive 40 series to handmade models that will satisfy the most demanding soloist. Yamaha's professional 60, 80, 800 and 900 series recorders are available in a variety of woods for subtle sound differences.
It has a slight resistance when you play for better breath control which gives greater tonal expressivity and projection.
A hard heavy wood for vigorous tone, with rich overtones similar to Kingwood, but a little softer and sweeter. (Gravity after drying approx 1.0)
