Re: Unfocused low D on piccolo

If you bought it from ebay you should firstly arrange a good tech revision for your piccolo, before you can state whether it's a problem with your playing or with the instrument.

Re: Flute Donation Campaign

I just wanted to follow up on this story. When I first saw Zevang's post, I forwarded it to Altus/Azumi to see if anything could be done to help this young man. They were able to get in touch with him and he sent an email. I am pleased to announce that we replaced his flute so that he may continue....

Re: Used Muramatsu Gx vs. New Muramatsu Ex? Thoughts?!

fluteguy is right ;-) Just to clarify a little bit more, both models have all silver headjoints. The difference, indeed, is only the tube of the body, that's what I think fluteguy meant. I have an EX-III with the Tsubasa lipplate. This is my second flute (the first is a Nagahara), and I really like ...

I can't see the amount of play you are dealing with, but maybe a Swedging Pliers would help.

Re: Audition- advise on basic piece to play

Try the Suite Antique by John Rutter. It has six movements and at least two of them (Chanson and Aria) are not terribly difficult. It's on the Distant Land recording. Here are YouTube links to those movements: Chanson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW0-HnFMQsQ Aria https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: Flute Donation Campaign

Hello FluteGo! (another rhyme... :-)

I have some possibilities, but nothing concrete yet.
Would you have something hidden up that closet that is playable?

I already have a person in Germany to take the flute directly to the Iraqi guy. She's a music teacher.

Best wishes!

Flute Donation Campaign

Dearest Listers, It came to my knowledge the situation of a flutist in IRAQ. I had all information confirmed by a musician and the managers of the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq (NYOI). It happens that Karar, the flutist, had his flute destroyed (an Azumi 3000) in a fire provoked by a bomb at the ...
