Rose Gold Lip Worth It?

Post by sdfluteguy »

Hey! So I tried out a few brands of flutes under 3K this past weekend and have seemed to lean more towards Azumi, Di Zhao, and Sonare. Out of them, I found an Azumi AZ3 with a Gold Lip Plate available which really spoke out to me. However, it does not have a C# trill or Split E. Is that fine? Or would that hurt its resale value? I really enjoy the gold lip plate and crown so I don't know if it is worth it or not? (btw its 2559 or so).

Thanks!

In the end, it really is your choice. If it feels right, plays right, and sound right, then that is what you should get. The C# and split E are extra cost options, not requirements. The extra cost up front will slightly increase later resale value, but not dramatically. I have neither option on my flute but I upgraded to a 14K white gold head with a rose gold lip plate and platinum riser. So, if that flute makes you happy, get it.
