    Re: where to rent a bass flute from?

    What piece are you playing in orchestra that requires bass flute? Is it Holst's "The Planets"? If so, it's actually for alto flute.

    Please note that until the last century or so, pieces that...

    Re: High E Facilitator

    To trill from high G to A, use both trill keys and the G# key at the same time. This takes lots of practice to get right.

    Some flutes do come with a G to A trill key, but that is very rare. What...

    Re: question about yamaha flutes

    Some people (like me) prefer the CY cut/taper, especially the handcut ones. I personally find that, for me, it has a better tone throughout the registers.

    I have an older 500 series with a...

    Re: I Can to teach myself the flute ?

    You support the flute with your right thumb, crook of the left index finger and the chin. That leaves the left thumb to move without any weight on it.

    Also, I've heard bad things about the Expert...

    The vast majority of flute music is for the standard C flute. So if you're planning to play off of that, stick with the C flute (or the bass flute that plays in the same key, just an octave lower)....

    CEF means it's a Capital Edition flute. I'm not sure about the 7000, but the "E" probably means it has a split-E and the "O" probably means it has offset G. Just guessing, though.

    The only problem is all the Powell 2100 model flutes I...

    This is a good point. If the wood gets too dry, it is more prone to crack.

    That said, it is important that you dry out the piccolo thoroughly after each use since too much moisture can damage it...
