Hi i´m interested on purchasing a c-foot piccolo, and i would like to know how to contact you.!!!
I guess a Yamaha, Emerson or Jupiter closed hole would get you going without spending a lot. The nickel flutes (most closed hole) with silver plating would be my choice. Avoid the nickel plated ones as they are a bit slippery. US $200 seems to be the top end price wise.
Hey Bruce man, what do you recommend flute wise for a moonlighting tenor player? My gigs are duos, trios & quartets. I usually play and sing jazz/swing/Latin standards. I throw in the rare clarinet tune or two, but i really don't dig the clarinet (even though i started on it when I was a lad). So I want to make the flute my doubling axe, you know, for real, and develope a really nice tone to go with my tenor scene - and I'm working on a vocal Samba thing too. I just think the flute is the way to go. But I'm seriously inexperienced in all things flute. I'll ask around here with the local cats too. In the mean time, what do you think? What would be like the gig-acceptable, but budget flute to go for before I wig out and drop real money on a really sexy jazzy flute? I have a decent old selmer K-series clarinet that I could trade...

I have been thinking of selling mine (lacquer) as I prefer silver plate to match the ohter Bueshcer si have. I can't go that high right now. I have about $400US in mine with the repad I did last year. I was given to me by a guy in Elkhart. Oddly it is keyed to high F! You might check with jicaino here at SOTW as he was looking for one. Good guy and I sold him a curvie a few years ago with no problems.
I've just sent my Buescher sopranino to Sax.co.uk in London for them to sell on my behalf (I think it may appear on their website at some point soon), it's at the London store on Denmark street. We haven't fixed a price yet but it seems likely to be around £2600. I will consider any offer however as I am very keen to sell. It's unusual I think to find one in good playing order like this. I bought it from Jay Easton. I think when Vintagesax.com gets one they sell them with a re-pad for quite a bit more than this price usually. Mine has new pads and I think Jay did the set-up. It took me quite a while to find this sax, after quite a bit of research on the topic. It's a lovely saxophone, an early one with the G# key, a holy grail in many ways, this is a very reluctant sale, but I need the money at this point.
I see you posted to this old thread about DeFord flutes. In that thread you said that the model 10B has solid silver keys.
This Ebay listing appears to be a model 10B, but the listing says the keys are plated. Do you believe the listing may be incorrect?
I'm looking for a solid silver body + keys flute that is in BAD condition. I need it for a flute overhaul class I'm taking this year. Just learning a new hobby.
Furthermore, I am borrowing a DeFord model 8B. It is difficult to tell for certain, but the keys appear to be solid silver here too. Were model 8B's made with solid silver keys?
Can't say for sure but my guess in in the 1990-97 era. The oval ELD was dropped in 1998 so it ois older than that. It may have big ELD letters on the barrel which was done for some special models with the gold lip and hand cut head. Sorry I don't know of a listing for these.
i saw that you know quite a bit about flutes, so maybe you can help me out. i would like to know what model my Emerson is and the year it was made. it has ELD on the head joint in an oval shape, gold-plated lip plate, open hole, and the serial number begins with a C. hope you can help me out.
thank you for your time
