Re: Repeated loose screw

Loctite works, but if you use the wrong type, it is almost impossible to remove. Instead, I suggest using clear fingernail polish. That is definitely removable, some flute techs use it, and you might even already have some in your house. 1 - Apply fingernail polish sparingly and ONLY on the head of ...

Re: Trying Piccolos - Lip Plate

Well, I have a Yamaha YPC-62 piccolo. When I bought it, it came with an ordinary straight picc headjoint. As a doubler on Sax, Flute, and Clarinet, I initially had some difficulty getting a good focused tone on picc even after more than a year of trying. So, when I was at an NFA convention, I tried ...

Re: Trying Piccolos - Lip Plate

For a low-budget composite piccolo option ($549), you might check out the Kessler piccolo. It has a modified wave-style lip plate. I have never tried one, but I have read good reviews from other flutists. Kessler also offers a risk-free trial. https://www.kesslerandsons.com/product/kessler-custom-co...

Re: treble flute

For some reason, it appears that it was a browser issue. I originally tried to view it using Chrome browser and it did not work. I switched to Firefox and it does work. Nice video!

Re: silver-plate handcrafted flutes

Pearl flutes are good. My primary flute is a Muramatsu but I have a 500 series Pearl that I use as a backup and for outdoor gigs. I have worked on a few Pearl 600 series and they play really well.

Re: Haynes Amadeus 700 vs Azumi AZS3, which one to choose?

Have you tried playing them? Both of those are reputable brands and if you've narrowed your selection to those two, playing them should help you pick the one that feels right for you.

Re: C foot joint Vs B foot joint

The B foot does not make the fourth octave more difficult. It does change the the length of the flute which alters some of the harmonics. On a B foot, high C requires the addition of the B key and the gizmo key simply make it easier to press only the low B key when playing high C.
