  2. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    A little bit of backstory- I work in instrument repair and come across a ton of instruments weekly. I just started in October, but there was a flute that had been sitting on the repaired shelf since early 2018. It was a Yamaha YFL-684, a discontinues 600-series model flute with an inline G and...
  3. Flute & Piccolo
    After about 40 years with my trusty Gemeinhardt M2S I decided to upgrade to a higher quality flute with open keys and a B foot. A couple days ago I bought an Amadeus Af780 with a 14k riser. Today I exchanged the Amadeus for an Azumi Z3RBO. To start with, it was a very close call. Both are very...
  4. SOTW Member Compositions & Arrangements
    Trying to get the hang of the video editing software. This song started life as a jazz tune, but without drums and bass it kinda just sounds like a "contemporary composition," so to speak. Extended usage of one motif and the major scale throughout. Check it out and see if you dig...
  5. Cases
    Hi, anyone has recomendations for alto sax + clarinet + flute cases? I've been looking at the protec and it has been really attractive especially since you can use the flute and clarinet pouches as single cases essentially, but wanted to get some advice before I spend that much money. Using...

    I got a Gemeinhardt Flute W/ Hard Case at an estate sale (Plus a few other beauties)... But this one says only... GEMEINHARDT ELKHART IND. A88 (5, 6 or 8)... I can't really tell the last. But A88 are very clear. No other markings anywhere. I can't find anything like it online. Do you know...

    Does anyone know if this headjoint would fit a Miyazawa 602 heavy wall flute without adjustment? Has anyone played on this headjoint? What are your thoughts on it? I currently play on a Miyazawa MZ-9 with a gold riser headjoint, I'm just looking at what else is out on the market. My Hammig...

    Hey guys! I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself showing you a cool old flute i found and hopefully one of you might have more information regarding its history! I bought this flute around 10 years ago on a flea market, it has a very faded Buffet Crampon logo (with Brevete SGDG beneath...
  11. Teaching
    Can anyone recommend a flute teacher in or near Agoura Hills / Thousand Oaks / West Lake, northwest of Los Angeles? The prospective student (my brother) played saxophone many years ago in high school. So he has basic musical literacy, but is a beginner on flute. Thanks for any suggestions.
  12. Flute & Piccolo
    Hi All, I'm an avid doubler and I try to keep my skills sharp, but I always end up focusing on a couple of instruments a week, and letting the others slip a bit. I'm balancing Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Piccolo, Flute, Alto Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, and Bassoon. I know it's a lot to keep in shape on a...
  13. Reeds
    Hello! This is my friend's sixth year of playing the flute, and she wants to try alto sax. I let her try my strength 3 reed, but she couldn't make any sound, and I finally remembered that beginners shouldn't use 3's. I was thinking of giving her a 2.5 because of her experience with the flute...

  15. Clarinet
    A few weeks ago I finished writing and publishing a book I am very proud of. I developed a method to integrate the practice of woodwind doublings. It took me 10 years to write it, but it was worth every minute. I love this book and (humbly) I believe it is one of my best contributions so far...

    I have an Armstrong alto flute s/n #28-38864 which I purchased new in Wash. D.C. in 1979. The doctor recently diagnosed my lip problem as a nickel allergy. Can anyone tell me whether there is nickel in the head joint of this instrument? If so, where can I get a non-nickel head joint? Theo Wanne...

  18. General Discussion
    I've been playing flute for a while now, I'd consider myself a good player considering my age (14) and a fast learner. I'm switching to alto sax for now and will be starting private lessons tomorrow. Considering that the fingerings are very similar, the fact that I can produce a decent sound on...
