Flute Upgrade

Post by schokolademarzipan » Fri Jul 29, 2016 3:55 pm

I currently play on a Trevor James Privilege, which quite honestly is a great flute with a very mature sound for its price ($800). However I've been wanting to upgrade to a more advanced/intermediate level, as I wish to pursue flute studies and take music performance seriously.

Now, the only thing is that my budget is $2000-$2900.

I'm hoping I could get some advice on which flutes I could try that are excellent for that price range (which I understand is pretty limited).

I'm looking for a flute with a super sweet sound, and preferably a C# trill.


Also: I've already tried the Powell Sonaré 705 with 9k Aurumite lip plate, Di Zhao 700, and Azumi Z3.
They're all very nice, (the Azumi and Sonare in particular) but I would like to see what else is out there before narrowing my choices down to these three.
