I recently had my eye on the Haynes Classic Q3, but this does not not seem to be available in the uk. However, I have always wanted a Burkart. I am an amateur player, and play mostly in concert bands. I currently play on a yamaha 6 series, so the idea of a new flute for me is to have a really nice instrument which is a delight to play. The Haynes is a similar price to the lower end Burkarts, but I also note the Resona 300 range. The specs are very similar to the Haynes and some of the other Burkarts but at an attractive price. So I guess my question is, is there much difference between the Resona and lower end Burkart models?
I know there will be many calls of 'try before you buy', but as I live in the UK I have limited options. To buy any of these instruments means importing them. I am interested in peoples experiences of these instruments.
