A plastic one would be best for your situation. I played a silver Gemeinhardt student model (4SP I think) from 8th and throughout high school marching band and it did its time, but after a few seasons and tons of field shows, it got worn out and got beaten up a lot. Its scale kinda messed up now af...

I also love Patrick Gallois for anything baroque or pre-classical (like CPE Bach, etc.). THAT's the name I've been looking for forever!! I fell in love with his recording of Mozart's Concerto in G. He's the French flutist, right? I mixed him up with James Galway because of the slight similarities w...

50 flutes? You all were very lucky. We played it in our Wind Ensemble here at EKU, and we only had one person to a part [ one 1st flute, one 2nd flute, one 1st clarinet, one 2nd clarinet etc. etc.]. So, that made it very difficult. But, it turned out really well, and we made a recording of it, and ...

Elegy..... tough piece. Even though it isnt technically difficult, having all of those sustained tones and getting tuning and intonation to match well, is very difficult. I particularly disliked the low note on the second page that the flutes had to sustain for over a minute.... :roll: It is a nice...

Thanks for the info. :D

I wasn't sure if the kind of cork used really made a huge difference with sound.

You're both right about the open hole. D2 sounds better with the holes plugged. Thanx for the tip. I'll work on sealing the holes correctly with my fingertips. Deina-kun, why did you say, "...since you play an Azumi..."? Is there something I should know about my flute? Azumi flutes are open hole, w...

Performance Flute Plug

Has anyone seen/heard of this? http://www.leitholdmusic.com/msearch.htm http://www.woodlightflute.com/stoppers.htm http://stores.ebay.com/Leithold-Music_Accessories-Band_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ11QQftidZ2QQtZkm It seems interesting replacing the cork with that. I wonder if it really does affect the s...

Habit of rolling in

I have a bad habit of rolling in while I play. It might be the weight of the flute or how I hold it. Are there any suggestions for breaking this habit?

It might be that you're not completely covering the key with your finger, since you play an Azumi, which could be causing D2 to be airy.

When I play my open hole, even a slight change in the position of the finger over an open hole can affect the note.

Hope that helps!
