Need help choosing a flute!

Post by EdethainSDC » Mon Jul 04, 2016 11:48 am

Hi! I've been playing the flute for 8 years and right now i'm reaching a time where I need a new flute. I'm going to study flute in university, and right now i'm using a Yamaha371. My budget is around 9000€ (absolute maximum). I was thinking on one of these flutes: Haynes Q3; Muramatsu DS; Altus PSD. I haven't had the chance to try them yet, but I would like to know some opinions about them. Another possibility is a cheaper Altus flute (1207 or 1307 for example) but with a sepparatly bought headjoint, as I heard Altus's headjoints are quiet weak.. Which one of these is a better option?
