I'm pretty much a rank beginner on the recorder. I got one of Yamaha's party colored sopranos when my kids came home from camp with Lyons recorders. I figured that if they had one "just like Dad's", this might stick with them. As it turns out, I get along with the recorder a lot better than they did, and I'm looking to switch to an alto.

This is going to be a fun, take anywhere, personal enjoyment instrument. I already have 30 years on the trombone, and I'm not looking for another concert quality instrument to double on.

Here's what I need:
Needs to be for an intermediate player.
Needs to be durable, hence resin.
The bulk of my personal collection of music is stage and screen. Mostly vocal scores (Cats, Less Mis, and the usual standards). The rest is a mix of Swing and Klezmer. So I need something that sounds good playing pieces originally meant for singing.
My budget's $40-$50. USD depending on what comes with the recorder.

Recommendations?

How much of a difference is there between the ABS and the EcoDear recorders?
