Hello,

Hi, I have pretty small hands and I play an offset G Jupiter. I don't really like my Jupiter as it tends to be out of tune. There are offset G Yamahas that I've tried which sound very nice.

Hi everyone. My name is Kat and I just bought a flute on whim yesterday for fun. I used to play for a year back in 4th grade, but I'm a recent college graduate now, so it's been a while since I've played.

I was able to pick up the first octave fairly quickly though. I know how to play piano, guitar and some violin as well, so that definitely helps with learning.

Nice to meet you all. :]

Hi -- I'm new here too! Though not a newbie to flute, of course; been playing for 16 years, so more than half my life! Been playing piccolo for a little while too. ;)

Hi everyone! I'm totally new too! New to this forum and new to flute. I picked up the violin around age 21 and did till grade 5. Took up grade 1 piano and stopped as they did not have individual lessons available in the music school. Played with the idea of learning how to play the flute as it has such a beautiful sound and I can literally bring it anywhere. I bought a Yamaha YFL 361 on a whim but never really got to lesson 1 due to work commitments.

Now that I'm out of job, am considering selling my barely-touched flute to help pay bills. But am in a dilemma as I really can't bear to part with it. :cry:

Sorry to hear.
Have you considered renting it out to a responsible friend?
In my country, one year's rental = cost of used flute.
And if they don't wreck it, you still have a flute to rent out in the second year?

Hi flutego12, thanks for the suggestion! It's a brilliant idea. However, I don't really know a lot of friends who plays the flute and the handful that I know of are way more advance than me. Guess I'll just keep it in the meantime till I can find someone who is interested to rent it. Am actively looking for jobs and don't really mind doing part-time jobs in clinics to pay some bills. Just hope they don't find me over-qualified. :roll: Wish me luck in job hunting! :D

Hi There, 52 year old flute beginner here. I've fooled around a bit with a keyless, Irish flute. But I decided to try a fully chromatic, modern flute recently. I bought a Nuvo plastic flute to get my feet wet and see how I would like the Boehm system. I quickly decided that I liked the system so I decided to commit and ordered a Pearl Flute Quantz 525RBE1RB Series Flute - Split E mechanism, Offset G, B-footjoint. It is due to arrive later today by UPS and I am very excited about it!
