yeah, i briefly tried one out when i bought my alto at Chuck Levin's in DC. hyperventilating real quick. and a quick look on the net suggests they tend to be pretty dang expensive. but if i had one lying around, i'd surely mic it up and listen to how it sets in a mix.
i find that I can play most phrases that a standard concert flute can play in one breath unless it's all low notes.

FWIW, that response was regarding bass flute. I, too, can play long phrases on alto flute, but never reached a similar ability on any of the bass flutes that I owned.
That's correct, I meant bass.
When I tried contra and below it wasn't like that.
My bass is leaking all over and not playable right now.
Hope to take it in next week.
