Re: Anti-tarnish paper strips?

What kind of anti-tarnish cloths do you use? This is different from polishing cloths correct?

Re: final decision - DiZhao

I think the DZ200 has a silver riser too? Not sure. But in any case, $34 more is not that much.

Re: Flutter tone for Bumblebee

Did you check out youtube videos on the topic? :) I bet there's a way for you to train for the front R tonguing rather than the gargle kind haha.

Re: Is my flute contagious?

If your flute is silver, even plated, then you have the most antimicrobial danger to bacteria known. Wash your swab, yes, but the flute itself, the silver is the destroyer of bacteria. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/05/silver-turns-bacteria-deadly-zombies So interesting! I remember hearing ab...

Re: Flute lessons

Welcome Cebrul and hope you're enjoying playing. Are you getting any help from the university instructors? Hi Classitar! I'm enjoying it very much :) the teacher I found is from a different university/college than mine. Though it probably would be a good idea to contact my university's flute instru...

Re: flute price USA europe

The one from Intermusic also shows a discounted price of EUR585 from the original of EUR787 (26% discount). Then if you count the other import tariffs, maybe it'll end up more or less the same? I guess it also depends on the deals between the distributors/manufacturers too.

Flute lessons

Hi all, I've played the flute in my Jr. High band for 3 years and it has been 10 years since then. I've kept that same beginner flute and throughout the years I have had bouts of motivation to play a new piece of music and would practice for a short period - so my flute playing/practicing has been o...

Re: New flute help!

Thank you for your reply! I'm currently looking at buying the Azumi I mentioned before used. I have found one for a wonderful price of $1,600 on reverb. (which is almost half of the price new) It says that it was a demo, and had only been played on twice. It's the exact model I'm looking for with a...

Muramatsu EX and Azumi 3000

Hello! I recently got back to playing my flute and am looking to potentially upgrade to a "forever" flute (I don't plan to play professionally). I currently own a buffet 228 student flute and I think it's time for me to upgrade to something better. I tried the Muramatsu EX and the Azumi 2000* in sto...

Flute Plating

I went into a Long & McQuade store the other day to try out some flutes because I am looking to upgrade from a beginner flute and asked the associate about the silver plating on flutes. I asked if silver plating meant that the interior of the flute tube is also silver plated or if it just meant the ...
