Re: How many play flute and another instrument?

My main/best instruments are Flute/Picc and Guitar. I also play Saxophone, Bass and Piano. I also arrange/compose.

I am not as active professionally as I use to be, but still practice daily on my best instruments and piano.

Re: Pearl flutes vs Yamaha

I have played and have owned multiple models in both brands. The Pearl 795RBE is a higher level flute than a Yamaha 472. The 472 is a Solid Silver beginner flute. The 795 is more of an Intermediate/Pro level flute and has a better/smoother finger action. Both would be suitable as a first flute but y...

Re: Difference between opened and closed keys

For most players? Sound wise ......none Reach and key configuration may have a factor with hand position and covering the holes. This may affect dexterity.

In the end, it is all about what you play well. Flutes are made for the player, not the listener. Always remember that.

Re: Continuing flute?

You do not have to limit your playing experience to school. Seek out playing at a church, community band/orchestra, garage band/group, open mic/jam sessions, small performance groups, etc... as your school work and time permits. When I was in junior/senior highschool, that is what i did. Most of my ...

Re: I need a new flute so which one?

I will not say hybrid flutes totally suck. However, I do not prefer them at all. You can get a good quality flute with decent playability and a good headjoint for what some of these hybrid flutes go for and get a complete package that is up to par. What is the use of having a hand cut headjoint but ...

Re: Bought new Pearl flute... couple of questions and a hello!

I ended up buying the Pearl 665 from my local flute shop; got a good deal at $1095. I can always upgrade the hj in the future. I use to own one of these before someone stole it. Good choice! 8notes.com - is the subscription worth it? I like the idea of it, I do everything online now, makes sense to...

Re: Muramatsu DS or Miyazawa 402

Material/Brand means nothing. Design and playability for the player means everything.

If you like a flute, it is of good quality and you can afford it....get it.
