new info on low notes

Hi,

Thanks to both for your response. It turns out that the flute did, indeed, need some adjustments, especially in the foot joint. That has made it much easier to move from low C to the low Eb.

I'm still having on-and-off embouchre adjustments to deal with, but I will TRY to be patient!

low notes on new flute

Hi, all, Well, I finally got a new (to me) flute. I've played my Armstrong 104 for a year now, and I just recently bought an old (1952) Haynes. Wow, this is a really nice flute! Anyway, I'm having some trouble with the lower notes on my new flute. Here are my difficulties: 1. Getting the middle C lo...

Difference between Haynes models

Hi, folks,

Where can I find and explanation/discussion of older Haynes models? For instance, how exactly is the "commercial" model different from...um...whatever is NOT a commercial model?

Thanks!

Thanks for the information, Kat -

As it turns out, we hit town about 7:00 p.m. and still had over 200 miles to go. Alas, we didn't stop. Maybe next time.

Flute dealer in Las Vegas, NV?

Hi, folks, I'm traveling through Las Vegas, NV, this coming Monday, August 13, 2007. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a flute dealer or music store there that has a decent selection of flutes that I could try out. I live in a pretty rural remote town, and if I could check out (and maybe even purchas...

Happy with inexpensive ebay purchase

I'm very happy with the flute I bought on ebay. It's a student model (Armstrong 104) that had a few dings in the headjoint and needed some minor adjustments. I got it for $56; the grand total of $70 included about $15 for shipping. Then I spent $50 getting it adjusted, the dents removed, screws tigh...

Well, I guess I hadn't even been considering the change in temperature/humidity. I may have a problem...I live in the Mohave Desert. (It's 90 F right now.) We moved here about 2 years ago.

Any suggestions for pad care? We are NOWHERE NEAR a major city with instrument repair people.

Thanks.

pads

Thanks to all who responded to my question about pads and damp weather. It turns out I didn't have much confidence in the seller who told me I could NOT return the instrument - it was an "AS IS" sale. It sounded like a terrific price for an all-silver flute; however, it wouldn't be so hot if it need...

question about pads

Hi, folks, I am looking at a web site for a music store that sells flutes (among other instruments). They are selling a used flute that I'm investigating. Here's my question: Have you ever heard - or seen - a statement like this? "Due to the nature New England weather pads can become unseated during...
