A few other suggestions * arrange a short show and ask for a small admittance fee and donations. * ask for community involvement (but don't badger the community) i've seen a few signs like help send our choir to Syd...

I have to agree I love both my sankyo instruments having two of them makes me doubly happy :lol: :lol:

When I tired the sankyo 601 in japan i thought that instrument was well above my skills to play but even at that level it was effortless playing shame I couldn't afford to buy it :P

The ST-3 does perform better at the top except it is not only very bright it can also be very loud so you need to be prepared to learn how to control the sound a bit more than that of the ST-2 you might like to have a look at this link you will need to translate it though using something like google...

The cut on the Sankyo does make a difference, I own two sankyo flutes both models made for the japanese market and they both have different cut headjoints. I didn't get the choice of which headjoint I got on either of my sankyo's but I can tell you there is a difference in the cuts. I have an ST-2 a...

I have tried two of the sankyo piccolos last time I was in japan the 301 and the 401, I am saving up to buy the P401.

In japan there are three models available the 201, 301 and the 401

They do sound different to the wood models as you would expect.

Hope this helps

There are quite a few places you can go to try head joints out and if you take your flute with you they should be able to get it adjusted on the same day. dolce musical instruments in Osaka had Powell headjoints when i was there in August, th...

Hi, I had all four wisdom teeth taken out plus two others. The only problem I have encountered is that you can get tenderness in the jaw occasionally. At first it was hard to deal with but now it doesn't worry me at all. There is no adverse affects at all really. My surgeon screwed up my jaw and I c...
