Re: Same headjoint on a different flute

Thanks fg18. I'm really hoping the results will be positive because I plan to keep this flute for rest of my life.

Same headjoint on a different flute

I tried a headjoint at a flute fair i really liked, so I had them fit the new flute using that headjoint. The flute's being made right now, and I'm just wondering whether the same head would sound similar on a new flute (same metal, etc.). I've heard otherwise, and that would be a shame - would just...

Thanks guys. Where in the case do I put the anti-tarnish strips?

Why is my flute coloring around the toneholes and keys?

I have a six-month old Muramatsu EX which I love very much, and in the past few weeks I noticed some bronze-gold color start to form around the keys and toneholes. Is the plating wearing off or was it exposed to too much humidity (I sometimes leave it out if I know I'm going to play in the next hour...

Re: UPGRADING FLUTE- DIFFERENT FLUTE BRANDS

I've used to own a Ps-705, and I saw my current EX as an upgrade, even though the Sonare had a 14K Aurumite headjoint. The mechanism on the Sonare was too fluttery for my liking and although it made a nice sound, the tone I got from it wasn't as consistent as I could have liked. Everything is better...

Re: Muramatsu Model Question

I tried the DS, GX, and EX models of Muramatsu. I felt the EX had the best sound, but when I switched headjoints with the GX, the GX had the same qualities as the EX on the original head. What matters is the craftsmanship of the headjoint, not the material of the body. So I ended up getting the EX t...

Offset G for long fingers

I've very long fingers, and I'm wondering whether to order a flute with an inline or offset G; I've heard offset g keys are meant for people with smaller hands. The flute I tried at the flute fair all had offset g keys, and I liked the feel of them. Would it pose a long-term problem for people with ...

Dropping Gold Prices

I'm planning to order a gold Brannen, but gold prices are dropping. Should I wait and see if the company drops its prices or are they unlikely to drop its prices?

Re: 15/85 Brannen

When I did a blind test and was told that it was a different flute, I thought it was just another silver flute. A Lafin headjoint, however, is a different story.
