Re: Joke of the Day

pp,

This is beautiful.
Good Luck.

I think I read an article once in Flute Talk by Patricia George saying that the design and weight of the crown makes a difference in tone production? I can say that the crown on my Williams HJ has more heft than the Haynes crown which has more than the Gemmy crown.

Re: Sankyo cf201-muramatsu EX, which one?

Zevang,

Thanks for the advice. Will give it a try.
Sometimes I think I have too much tension in my body when I play, need to relax more.

Re: Sankyo cf201-muramatsu EX, which one?

Zevang,

Really great playing and beautiful tone.
Do you find that playing your Sankyo requires more effort than your Muramatsu?
I've noticed that my shoulder aches more when I play my Brannen, plus it requires more
air stream than my Haynes.

Re: Flute Cases

I guess the thinking is that student flutes need to be in cases that can withstand being banged around more so they are more robust? They figure by the time one gets a "professional" flute that people are more responsible and careful with their instruments? Most if not all in this category also have...

Re: Mateki flute

There was a lady who played a Mateki in a flute masterclass I attended and she sounded wonderful. She told me that had she bought that flute from another member in the class who had just bought a Platinum Clad Muramatsu.

Re: Solid silver

If you do a Google search on M3S, it says solid silver body, plated keys/mechanism.

"body" meaning headjoint, body, and foot joint. In other words, the "tube".

Re: practicing scales, keys, chords...?

Go buy yourself the Taffanel and Gaubert 17 Daily Excercises for Flute book that has more
scales and arpeggios that you will ever want to know about.

Here are suggestions from Patricia George on how to use that book:

FG18,
I have never heard any "click" or other noise whatsoever with my Straub pads (that were installed by Brannen).

Re: Miyazawa or Altus?

Should mention that the Miya has the Brögger mechanism (as does Brannen). It has a really smooth and buttery feel to it imo.
