Re: Repadding Powell 2100

First, you really don't want to put soft pads in a Powell 2100. If you don't like the Straubinger pads, they can be replaced with thin, pressed felt pads. They are available to flute technicians in sizes to fit any flute including your Powell 2100. It wasn't clear from your message if you are thinki...

Re: College Audition

For a more contrasting work, I'd suggest either the Poulenc and Hindemith Sonatas.

Re: Old Gemeinhardt M3S + Thoughts on New(er) Flute?

About the only specs I can find indicate it is an all silver flute.

In the end, the best advice I can offer is to try as many different flutes as possible. Stick with well known brands and choose the one that you like best. If you do that, it's hard to go wrong.

Re: Locating a flute that I used to own

Also, I forgot to mention, The AD and DN are the same era so the scale is the same. I believe the main difference between the AD and DN is the AD has adjustment screws while the DN does not. Otherwise, they are essentially the same (i.e. Sterling Silver body, head, and keys). Used ADs go for about $...

Re: Is my flute broken?

There are many possibilities. It could be you or it could be the flute. The only way to know for sure is to have another flutist try it or have a flute repair technician check it over.

Re: Locating a flute that I used to own

There is no national flute registry that you can check. Your best bet is to post here (as you did) and also on several of the Facebook Flute groups. Maybe the person who bought it will see your postings someplace and contact you. Also keep an eye on eBay in case someone decides to sell it there. Pro...

Re: Cleaning tarnish on a flute

It looks like the plating is deteriorating. How fast that happens depends upon a lot of factors including body chemistry of the player(s), how well it is taken care of, environmental factors, etc. When the plating gets worn off like on the keys, there is not much that can be done except to have to o...

I'm one of the board moderators. I checked the new message queue and there is no introductory message there. Perhaps you could repost it. I've promoted you to full membership so your future posts will not be moderated.

Re: Help with upgrade

All of those flutes are good choices. I've tried most of those brands but I've only played Muramatsu extensively. I bought my Muramatsu about 20 years ago and it has been an excellent flute. I play semi-professionally and it has served me well. The Muramatsu headjoint is particularly good and many p...

Re: Emerson flute with serial # D75270 - 6

You didn't mention if this is an open holed flute or closed hole. That makes a difference in the value. The 6 and the sterling silver headjoint probably indicates that it is a Emerson EF6 flute which came with a sterling head. Here's a one each open and closed holed EF6 that are for sale (New) at an...
