I'm also curious about this. What are the price ranges of some of these instruments? I have a Yamaha that I paid around $400 for mainly as an obligatory move.

I know this is an old thread, but who's going to Nashville this week? My flute choir will be giving a brief concert there, and I'm really excited! I hope some of you will be able to come because it's always so rewarding!
