I've tried a lot of bass flutes, and personally... the Pearl is far and beyond my favorite. The keys are comfortable and move smoothly. The response is quick and the sound is full all the way to the bottom. I personally am not a fan of their concert flute, but I am a big fan of their large flutes. When I eventually purchase low flutes I will buy Pearl. Hands down.

This is of course my opinion only. All of those companies produce decent instruments and it is all a matter of personal opinion.
