Re: silver-plate handcrafted flutes

Pearl flutes are good. My primary flute is a Muramatsu but I have a 500 series Pearl that I use as a backup and for outdoor gigs. I have worked on a few Pearl 600 series and they play really well.

Re: Haynes Amadeus 700 vs Azumi AZS3, which one to choose?

Have you tried playing them? Both of those are reputable brands and if you've narrowed your selection to those two, playing them should help you pick the one that feels right for you.

Re: 1935 Haynes flute

Your best source of info for a Haynes flute is to contact Haynes. From their web site:

What year was my Wm. S. Haynes flute made?
We can help you determine the year in which your Wm. S. Haynes flute was created by its serial number. Please contact us at 978-268-0600 or info@wmshaynes.com.

Re: C foot joint Vs B foot joint

The B foot does not make the fourth octave more difficult. It does change the the length of the flute which alters some of the harmonics. On a B foot, high C requires the addition of the B key and the gizmo key simply make it easier to press only the low B key when playing high C.

Re: Need flute learning anecdotes

Hmm. Once when I was teaching, my student was playing an etude very nicely when all of a sudden, many notes were all wrong and quite a strange sound was coming from her flute. I tried her flute and couldn't play it properly either. After examining it, I found that a pivot screw had fallen out of the...

Re: Step-up instrument recommendations

In the $1000 range, Yamahas seem to hold up well. Parts are readily available and they also seem to hold their value pretty well too. Moving from the Olds flute that you currently play, a Yamaha would be a great step instrument. A Yamaha 300 series or 400 series should do nicely for you. A used 400 ...

Re: Yamaha Allegro?

The Yamaha Allegro line is basically the same as their 200/300/400 series. I believe that the Allegro designation was simply a mechanism for them to offer a unique designation for certain large music store chains.

Re: Yet Another Artley Identification thread :-)

Welcome to confusion. The serial number lists are notoriously inconsistent. Since you obviously have a flute with a number higher than the list documents, the only reasonable conclusion is what you stated and probably was made around 1985.
