flutepicc06, Thanks for the tip about the C-D trill using the C# trill and first trill key. Will have to try that out when I get my flute back. Yep, have to agree that adding the C# trill (and Split E) in 1998 was a good investment. I don't know why I didn't think of the D# roller too. I still need ...

I agree, I find spammers to be very annoying. Why do they have to clutter up our flute forum and our mailboxes with junk?

Most jewelry cleaners sold to consumers is just liquid detergent with a little dye added to make it pink. Some formulations do have ammonia in it to help cut the grease (which tends to stick to diamonds). Liquid dishwashing soap does the same thing (that is what I use on my diamonds all the time). H...

Thanks all for your sage advice. I decided to go with the Williams. But as fluteguy18 said, I just hope I made the correct decision.

They sound almost the same to me (much better and louder than the headjoint that came with my thinwall (.014") Haynes flute that I purchased back in...

Other Flute Forums/Message Boards

Hi,

I am new here (my first post)

Does anyone know of other flute forums/message boards?

I tried to use Larry Krantz's pages but find the Listserv troublesome to work with.
