  1. Flute & Piccolo
    I may be required to play piccolo in 6 weeks or so. Can anyone recommend a decent budget piccolo (either used or new)? I have pretty decent flute chops, but I haven't had to play piccolo (except very briefly, decades ago), so I don't know what to look for or which student or budget models have...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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!
  7. 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...

  11. Flute & Piccolo
    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...
  12. Flute & Piccolo
    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...
