Head Joint Stopper Stuck

The cork/stopper in my headjoint will not move. I was told that I could "un-stick" it by dipping the head joint into boiling water. Is that kosher????? I do NOT want to hurt my flute! I would take it to the local repairperson but have been advised that he is not that good with flutes; i.e., my frien...

Phineas: I decided to take a chance and ordered an Orpheo composite. I'll let you know what I think about it after it's here. Keep your fingers crossed for me! I'm basically getting it to play with in a group I"m in that plays renaissance-type music -- violins, cellos, recorders, and flutes. I'm hop...

Huh. Just saw something I had to ask an opinion on. Has anybody ever tried the Orpheo composite flute? What is that like? (another one of my "type of flute" questions -- it just looks neat!)

Thanks in advance!

Thank you both very much. The main thing about this forum that I enjoy so much is the depth of knowledge so many of the members have about flutes in particular and in general. I know my weakness, and therefore I expect sometime this year I'll be getting flutes from FluteWorld to try out, even tho I ...

Phineas & fluttiegirl: Thanks for the input! There are so many flutes out there that I don't know anything about. I saw another post about buying an entry-level (I think that was the term ...) handmade flute versus a machine made one for the amount of money that was being discussed. $2900 - $3500???...

I didn't mean to sound like I don't like my Yamaha anymore -- I do! I love both the Yamaha and the Amadeus; it's just that when my arthritis kicks up in my hands, the Amadeus is a bit easier on the fingers. Just a question -- does anybody have an opinion on the Brio? I saw a rose-gold plated Brio on...

Oooh, I just had to put in my two-cents on this one!! I started playing again last September after 30 years absence. Took my old Armstrong in to be adjusted, and casually picked up a Yamaha Allegro 500 series while I was waiting and OMG it was like I'd been struck by lightning! That sweet li'l flute...

I joined not too long ago, but guess I've just been "lurking" since I didn't think I had anything intelligent to say. I've sure enjoyed reading all of the posts y'all put on, tho!!! So many flutists who really know what they are doing .... :lol:
