Changes...

Did things get redesigned? The board looked to be down for a while, and now it looks a little different. Also, no more profile pics?

Where do you practice?

Just taking a short break from reading for my environmental sociology midterm and thought I'd do a little forum poll.

Question is....where do you practice flute the most? At home (if so, what room)? At school? At a studio? Outside? Somewhere else? And why do you like to practice where you do?

:)

Thanks, everyone! I will definitely take good care of it. I'm pretty paranoid about anything happening to it :) @fluteguy18....yes, I saw all your posts when you got your Miya! How funny...I wondered what made you switch to the MZ-7. I think that was my least favorite of the headjoints :shock: I had...

I'd never heard of a soprano flute before. Here's a blurb on it. Interesting....

Ok, you guys scared me into not even messing with plugs. At this point anyway, I don't feel that I need them. It would just be taking a step backward. I'm REALLY glad I didn't find those plugs now! I'm sure I would've done it the wrong way.

NEW flute!!!

Hey, I just wanted to announce my new flute! I've decided to purchase the Miyazawa PB-202 I've had out on trial :) :) :) It's got heavy-walled tubing, C# trill, split E, offset G, D# roller, and 14k riser on the MZ-8 headjoint. Also standard are Straubinger pads and partial Brogger system (same as r...

Well, I found the plugs! They were in a side pocket of the carrying case! Ha! All this commotion for nothing...good info anyway. I guess it's good I didn't find the plugs in the beginning because I probably would've put them in. I've been playing open-holes for several days now, and I pretty much ha...

Rhonda Larson music

Has anyone learned/played any of Rhonda Larson's flute music? I just found someone on youtube playing "Movin' On", and it sounds really cool. I just wondered how advanced the actual music is or if anyone had anything else to say about it.

Footjoint getting stuck...something wrong?

As some of you may have read in other posts, I'm trying out a Miyazawa flute right now. I love it to pieces! Only problem I have run into with the instrument is the foot joint is really hard to get on and off. I emailed the sales people today, but no response yet. Is this at all normal or is somethi...

Open-holes practice

I am trying out a Miyazawa 202 right now; stepping up from my closed-hole Bundy. The Miyazawa has open holes and did not come with plugs, so I'm finally having to learn to play with open holes. I think I'm doing pretty good except for low B and C ("C4"). It seems like when I move my right pinkie fin...

Miyazawa headjoints

I finally got the Miyazawa in the mail today!!! It's even better than I remembered!! I am playing every second I get, and I am in love. They sent me about 6-7 different headjoints to try, and I'm having trouble recognizing the differences between them. The website makes each one sound good in their ...

Oh, random side note. My favorite student flute that I've ever played was the old Bundy nickel plated flute. I don't know why, but I just really liked them. They aren't made any more, but they're worth looking at if you can find a used one in good shape. That's my flute! I complain about it, but on...

Gosh, those are really beautiful! But I wonder, too, how they are to play. I emailed and asked if he would do a custom lip plate design...I'm thinking an owl on a tree branch...I have a bit of an owl obsession ;)
