Boston-based Vindor Music is hoping to eliminate the obstacles holding back beginner musicians with its Vindor ES1. Developed by tech entrepreneur Fen Trias and saxophonist Joel Edinberg, the Vindor ES1 is a unique instrument shaped like a 16-inch recorder. The instrument is comprised of a molded plastic and is fully digital. This digital aspect allows the instrument to be easily played by replacing difficult-to-cover holes with simple touchpads, mirroring the fingerings of a saxophone. Vindor ES1 can also be programmed to work like a clarinet, recorder and much more.

The goal behind the Vindor ES1, and Vindor Music, is to increase accessibility in music. Each key can easily be adapted to an individual's specific needs and its ability to replicate the tones of multiple instruments makes it ideal for those who cannot afford multiple classic instruments. Vindor Music intends for its revolutionary instrument to one day be sold in stores around the world and is currently working with a group of rock and jazz musicians to introduce more to the Vindor ES.
