Key height...

Postby Card2132 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 10:13 pm

I've recently sent my flute (commercial Haynes) for a regulation & clean-up and my repairman sugested
to lower the key heights : when I got my flute back the sound seemed to have changed somewhat...
Is it me or Does lowering key height affect a flute sound?

Yes, a point exists where the key height will affect the note, the trick is identifying how low you can take the key before this happens, and then setting all keys above this height.
