Re: Emerson model?

Hi there. This flute would be an Emerson model 6B, based on your description and the serial number engraved on it. The Emerson model 6 has a sterling silver head, silverplated body and foot joint. The 6B is the same with the addition of the B foot joint. The -6 at the end of the serial number indica...

Re: Sankyo piccolo

Hi everyone. I realize this post has been dead for many, many years, but I wanted to update you on my recent acquisition of a Sankyo piccolo (P-201 model) and my thoughts on it now that I've played on it for a week. I have been toying with the idea of buying one ever since 2009 or 2010 when I first ...

B foot joint for Sankyo Artist

Hi everyone! I have a Sankyo Artist with a C foot and am looking to add a B foot as well. I am specifically looking for a Sankyo B foot with pointed key arms, with silver tube and keys preferred but the material is not a deal-breaker if you have an extra B foot from an Etude (201) or Silver Sonic (3...

Re: Emerson ELD Serial # Check

Knowing the model of your Emerson flute would likely be a better place to start for determining an approximate value. If you can provide the forum with the model (1, 3B, 8B, etc.) or with at least a thorough description of your flute which would help us to assess the model number (since it is not st...

Sankyo crown

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a silver crown for my Sankyo, and was wondering if there are places you may know of that would sell a Sankyo crown by itself. New or used...either would be fine. Or if you happen to have one lying around, feel free to let me know if you'd be willing to sell it! :D

Yes, it's the K-5 (or the 5K, according to Sankyo's website). Made in 2003.

Hi neonG - Thanks for your response. I'm most curious about the timbre of the silver Sankyo piccolo, and how the intonation is. Also, what do you think its best features/qualities are, and do you agree with the notion that this piccolo is NOT one of the typical "screaming meanie" types seen among ma...

Sankyo piccolo

I was wondering if anyone has tried the Sankyo piccolo before? As far as I know, they offer just one model (silver head/silverplated body). Their flutes are beyond fantastic, so I was wondering if their piccolos are worthy of serious consideration as well? Thanks!

Emerson piccolo headjoints

Hi everyone. I was wondering if there is a place (like the Woodwind & Brasswind) that sells Emerson piccolo headjoints? I have a wooden Emerson picc (not the Boston Legacy with the cork receiver) and would like to get a silver headjoint to have in addition. I know WWBW sells Gemeinhardt headjoints s...

As an oboist as well, I can personally attest that circular breathing is a hugely beneficial ability among double reed players. As you can see from this video, there are absolutely ZERO places to breathe (because there are ZERO rests) from 0:24 to the end of the video. Pieces like this for oboe requ...

Beelady - I don't know why gizmo keys aren't marketed this way, but they are also beneficial when used on A, Bb, and B in the 4th octave as well. As with the C, the gizmo key can help to slightly bring down the pitch of these notes, as well as "dampen" the harsh tone that can accompany them while th...

Touche, Adam. But I assumed my meaning was clear: The Sankyo Artist (flute) is going for $2500. Rarely, if ever, does the Sankyo artist (person playing the flute) go for nearly as much. :D :D :D
