Re: Muramatsu heavy vs thin wall?

I use my C# trill a lot too. Maybe because orchestras tend to play more in sharps than bands that play in flats?

Happy New Year to you too!

I'm excited.

Re: Alto Flute question

thanks everyone! It'll be a little while before I can get one unless I run across a true bargain. Any recommendations for brands? Or even brands to stay away from?

Re: Alto Flute question

I find that the straight headjoint gets tiring to play after awhile. So I also have a curved headjoint.

Re: Shipping

I know that Brannen uses Fed-Ex.
Haynes was using UPS.
Neither are cost effective.

Re: Greetings from Maryland

@Angelsong,
Welcome to the board. Music is something that one can have a lifelong love of.
I myself returned to the instrument after a 15-year absence. I'm pretty close in age to you.
You will find that many on this board are eager to help.

p.s. the Principal oboe in our orchestra is 80 years young.

Re: HELP! Low Register Db to Eb variations fingering DIFFICU

Another option is to get a flute with a D# and/or C# roller. I think Miyazawa offers both, but my flute only has a D# roller, helps a lot.

Re: Piccolo Adventure

pp,

I checked the list and Ted Thiel is on the list.
He also put Schmidt pads on my friend's Brannen.

I got the flute in 2010, Brannen did the COA in 2011.
I'm probably due next summer so I'll have time to decide and investigate.
Thanks for the leads.

Re: Piccolo Adventure

Glad it turned out ok for you. That probably would have been the same result for Joe B. and Piedpiper, but for the rest of us? ----------------------- Lesson for me, don't take my flute apart ...
