Dvorak 8 4th movement solo

Re: Muramatsu heavy vs thin wall?

Thanks for the replies, opinions, and suggestions. I went to a flute store (JL Smith in Charlotte, NC) and tried a variety of models -- blind test, where the model names were covered so I didn't know what I was playing.

The two that I particularly liked were a heavy walled Muramatsu (DS) and a heavy walled Miyazawa (Boston Classic). Both are out of my price range, so I'm lookin...
