Hi everyone , I gave my yamaha away and just bought a new beautiful mura ex , I wanted the b foot but the vendor had only one sample with b foot but quite a few with c , the c foot I chose was much nicer in tone than the b foot (obviously the main result due to the HJ), so I took it home but he will...

Re: Yamaha 421: Has anybody got anything to say about this f

I've been with my yamaha 574 for some time now and I'm very happy with it , I tried out various yamahas before I decided on this one, I felt it was much superior to the 421 tone-wize, obviously ,mainly due to the EC hj, which I also put on a 421 , but somehow the 574 and EC hj played better for me ,...

Re: Yam 261 vs Armstrong 80-BT

I also asked advice on choosing a new flute In the Pearl flutes, but decided to try out the Yamaha 574 with EC HJ. somehow I didnt like the sankyo 301 and also 201 , I felt the Muramatsu was far superior all in all over the Sankyo. , The Pearls (665, 695 and 795) had a nice sound but somehow not so ...

Re: Sankyo cf201-muramatsu EX, which one?

Zevang , I also mentioned in another thread, but after more test driving various flutes, The mura E is really an incredible flute especially its articulation potential , and thats with the ordinary HJ .
All the best

Re: Sankyo cf201-muramatsu EX, which one?

Zevang, I just wanted to drop in for a sec to say that I listen to you ryoutube recordings form time to time , and I think that regardless of the flute you play your sound is always beautiful and you are IMHO very musical . I also thought from these recordings that I preferred the mura config, which...

I am also an older student but had played the bassoon many years before, I started about 6 years ago with a good teacher but somehow she couldnt pinpoint my problem in producin...

to de-genova

I see youve tried out the ex and gx 's , in your experience , is there any difference in sound between the Ex and the GX , I would like to believe there is as the GX is silver body and should have some more resistance
I have the ex , but woudl look to upgrade to eitherGX or DS
Thanks
