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.

Re: Step up flute??

I personally like the Jupiter 611, as I'm familiar with the brand and it's not terribly expensive. The Jupiter 611 or 711 are good choices.Great value for the flute and the headjoint. For the money, you will not do any better. Flute snobs do not like Jupiters for some reason. Maybe because they are...

Re: Question on Purchase of Intermediate Flute

Where is my money best used? On the brand, headjoint or the silver body? The best way to spend your money is on a flute you like to play on that you can afford from a reputable maker. Everything else is personal preference. Any dedicated player can sound good and play good on any decent playable in...

Re: Buying a new Yamaha flute - in Japan?

Glad it worked out for you!! Just got back a few hours ago. Short version: all went well. I bought a new YFL-517 (hand-made in Japan for the Japan market, closed hole, C-foot, silver Am headjoint) in Tokyo last week, for less than half of what a 500-series Yamaha would have cost me here at home in t...

Re: What can be done

I think early on, there was a lot of traffic due to a few factors. 1. Newness of the forum. 2. The Elders/Mentors on the board were a little less busy. 3. No Flute FAQ 4. Not needing a spam filter/ more moderation. I use to be on there WAY more frequently. At the time I was working on a job where I ...
