Re: Powell 9k Aurumite or silver conservatory flute

When I played around with the aurumite flute with the gold on the outside versus the sister flute I full sterling, I did notice that the air unite had an ever-so-slightly warmer sound. But I'm not sure of this is worth the extra money for it. Hope this helps.

Re: Pearl 765 vs. 795

I'm sorry if there was misinformation about the case type. The answer I put on was simply the same information given when I spoke with Gareth McLearnon(Pearl Flutes Artist) about it. He may not have known, considering he plays a 14K gold Maesta. In any case, the quantz line does utilize a rubber or ...

Re: Pearl 765 vs. 795

The major difference is the headjoint cut, as the elegante has a forza headjoint and the quantz is the standard. I personally play the pearl elegante and when trying them out I found that there was a major difference in the sound quality. The elegante also has a double-Sprung Bb key and has cork key...

Re: UPGRADING FLUTE- DIFFERENT FLUTE BRANDS

Have you tried the Pearl Flutes at all? I have an Elegante 795 RBCD and I love it. It's solid silver and has an inline G, a D# roller, and a C# trill. All for the price of 2668.80 USD. It's quite lovely for me. If you have not tried it and are still looking, you should give it a shot. Each to his ow...

Re: Earth for Flute and Piano

Since this collection is published by yamaha music media, has anyone considered contacting yamaha directly? I'm going to go ahead and do it and tell you my results.

Re: Earth by Takatsugu Muramatsu

I have worked and worked and worked to try and understand the website the link takes me to. I use amazon.us often but this is just confusing. I want the piece oh so badly, but it's toying with my patience just too much.

Re: What is Your Gender?

Male(as name implies). Only one at school but I have plenty of male flute friends. Everyone always stares at the marching competitions when I (a 6' 1" 245lb male) walk past them with my piccolo in hand. I hate, ABSOLUTELY HATE, to brag. But I am by far and large the best player of the flute at my hi...

Re: Have We Given Our Flutes Names? (And/Or Piccs-N-Saxes!)

My flute (which is a Pearl Elegante 795 RB-CD) is named Apollo, after the Greek god of Music. This is due to its amazing sound. My piccolo needs a mane though (any suggestions?). My Alto's name is Martin, simply because that is the manufacturer.
