Does anyone know anything about the Artley 18-0 open hole
flute? My mom has found one and is sending it to my daughter. Her teacher says
it is a good brand, but I know nothing about this flute or the maker and cannot
seem to find anything on the internet about this flute other then people selling
them. Can anyone tell me about this flute? What is the history of the maker and
any common problems with this model.I almost forgot, it has a B foot. Thanks a
bunch.

Hi~ I don't have any personal experience with the Artley
line of flutes. From what I have read online I wouldn't purchase one but that
doesn't mean that your daughter won't have a good experience with it. If you
were purchasing this flute new I would tell you to investigate some others first
before investing a lot of money. Kim

new. I just received it today and my mom was wrong it's a 15-0, which is good
for my daughter. It needs to go in to the shop for new pads, cork and tuning,
but it's in really good shape. But it has a nice sound, even out of tune. My
daughter loves it and I think it will make a good first open whole flute for
her. Well as soon as we get a little work done on it, [:)].The only real problem
I see is who ever had it cleaned it with silver polish, someone who didn't know
better. But I'll have it re cleaned to get that taken care of too. I just wish
I new more about the maker.

Hi, I am glad that your daughter likes her new flute. This
past summer when I was looking for a flute for myself I had a friend at work
bring me in one that she was lwanted to sell. I was shocked when I opened it up
to see that she had "attempted" to pretty it up by "polishing" it with silver
polish LOL You might consider joining Flutenet on Yahoo. They have many
knowledgable people there. There are many flute teachers and a couple of repair
tech's that are members there and I would bet that someone there would be able
to give you some information on Artley's. Kim
