Re: flute laundry -cleaning tips for the various types of st

do not clean it.....your flute is ok. it doesn matter if it has some minimal scratches.some people prefer it to have a vintage look.so dont' worry.mine is 24 years and it is full of scratches but "sings like a bird"

Re: qs music grenadilla headjoint(herbert neureiter)

as a first view the head seems to be good enough.the embochoure is oval like.but the sound? in the site there is no sound clip,so i have to pay it,try it,then if i dont like it i will return it.please,if somebody owns it could be very helpful to tell his opinion.thanks.

Re: flute heads

i live in greece and there is no possibility to try headjoints,thats why i ask you.well,maybe i have to do a trip in the uk to pick up a head.

p.s if anybody knows about the herbert neureiter grenadilla head,i will wait for his opinion.


my repertoire is basically pieces of the romantic period.
