Re: Opinion Sought - PEARL Flute PF665E Dolce & Headjoint

Thank you for your input Phineas and JoeButky.

From your comments it would appear that there are huge inconsistencies in the seller claims.
eg
665 but dolce
665 and made in Japan
vivo cut

Easiest way is to bend it back, or alter the cork difference between the two contact areas
Hi Steve, does that mean unstacking for the former?

Re: Red Wing Instrument Repair Blog

Looking good, bro.
The blogs look great & thanks for sharing the journey, particular the woodwinds (flute and clarinet)
For clarinets, I found this fantastic resource by Haynes publications - it takes one from pre-school through to college - cognitively.
I wish they had one for the Flute.

A worthy Q deserves an answer. My apologies if anything is mis-categorized... Most of these are WIPs :mrgreen: 1) French School - not sure which period that is - neo classical?
