Re: Miyazawa flutes

Im just curious, but has anyone here played or owned a Miyazawa flute? Do the straubinger pads and brogger system make much of a difference? What were your opinions on the instrument overall? The PB202 is sweetly lyrical - ideal for french school - even with the nonBroggers, the mechanism is sweet ...

Re: A pic, per request

What a cool office fg18. Love it. Where are you attached? Or does everyone know this already in case we want to be sending you our woodwinds. You have "arrived" - first station. Have no doubt you are well on your way to your branded piccolo soon. Spotted the low hanging fruits =) except the screwboa...

Re: the Violin Community has embraced them, Sax has Berhaus

Hi Bob. Thank you for your msg and good to hear from you again. Ah DiZhao! Our local establishment stock them so, for me, DZ has technically already "arrived" and hence placed above the category I was shooting for. 8) I was merely keeping an eye out for upcoming producers who may already be in the m...

Thanks buddy.

Re: the Violin Community has embraced them, Sax has Berhaus

decrypted, it simply seeks to know if there is a pre-legitimized flute producer who is putting out very good quality flutes (mandatory descriptors include durable, reliable) at ridiculously low prices ...

the Violin Community has embraced them, Sax has Berhaus ...

at the risk of being stoned, I have a Q nevertheless... the vanilla subset of the Violin Community have embraced them, Sax enthusiasts have almost legitimised the Antigua & Berhaus-Walstein offerings ... who do we, the Flute community have?

WM Haynes Amadeus AF600 - Has anyone played this?

Friends of fluteland

Am seeking reviews of the WM Haynes Amadeus AF600 (solid headjoint 14k riser)
and whether this flute is adequate to see one through the AMUS and LMUS?

Is this just an Intermediate flute or more?

Thank you in anticipation.

Re: Workbench Disaster: Lipplate LIFT OFF - Qs on REATTACHM

Oh dear.... :roll: :lol: But really, in all honesty this should be done by someone who has experience if you want to have any chance of using it again. You're effectively altering the undercut of the headjoint which will have dramatic consequences on the upper and lower registers (one will improve ...

Re: Workbench Disaster: Lipplate LIFT OFF - Qs on REATTACHM

I give you credit for doing things, but really, sometimes you have to understand why your doing it rather than blindly doing what someone else advocates. Its a very simple repair To fix, you need to remove all the old solder from both the lip plate and the mouth pipe, once clean, flux and tin both ...

Workbench Disaster: Lipplate LIFT OFF - Qs on REATTACHMENT

Recently scored a rather reputed continental flute of some age The lipplate was hugging the headjoint and following advice from a great US flute restorer via another flute authority, I found the courage to "adjust" the edge of the lipplate to separate it from the hj tube wall. Easily done enough to ...

Re: NAPBIRT MEMBERSHIP

Reason I ask is because, I am considering attending one of Joe's clinics which I am really keen on AND being a member gives one a delicious $300 discount. That aside, always good to know some ppl in the trade.
