Hi, I've just joined & would be interested to hear which type of flute you play. :)

I have a pre used Gemeinhardt flute & a pre used Yamaha piccolo that I need to get to know.

That's an old 'un, has it got any special history behind it?

I really don't know. I bought it off eBay some years ago. It's a good one, plays beautifully and is in almost perfect condition. It's a Rudall and Rose. You'll find many people on this site with similar flutes, I should imagine.

I'm not much of a flute player. When I do, it's on a homemade PVC job. I'm more of a whistler/fiddler, and aspiring piper. Uilleann pipes are an amazing instrument but rather demanding.

You can't limit yourself to just one.

I play:
A Jupiter dimedici Bohm flute
An Olwell pratten keyless
A delrin keyless Copley
And a 5 key Martin freres f flute

I love them all.

Mainly Copley custom four-key Solomon Blackwood D and keyless Delrin D/Eb simple system.
Sometimes Trevor James (solid silver) or Pearl (silver plate) Boehm system or Vincent Bernolin resin A=415 baroque flute (Delusse with Palanca-style embouchure).
I've had others... notably a Rudall Carte cocus Boehm system I bought last year and sold shortly afterwards after deciding I didn't need it...

This is turning out to be quite interesting, as a lot of the names I have never come across before. :)

Thanks for all your replies.
