When I was first starting out, I brought three flutes to my first lesson. The two-piece Dixon, the three-piece Dixon and the Casey Burns Folk Flute. My teacher didn't like the Dixon flutes at all (so it can't be just me). He did like the Folk flute a lot, though.

The Folk flute is extremely easy to play and sounds really good.



Ill keep an eye out for a Casey Burns in the UK but if I buy from America it starts to go way over my budget

Hello!
Someone cited Doug Tipple flutes.
If you want to buy one of it, I have one to sell from Europe (Italy).
This is the sale post on this forum! :thumbsup:

I think he already bought one. :)

And as for a Casey Burns Folk Flute, I have one for sale. I live in Sweden, so there are no import duties.

Yep, you are right. :D
I change my advice to the open poster: if you can, wait to have more money to spend (about 500/600€) and buy a wooden flute. Some good makers offer very nice keyless wooden flute that fits that budget.

Thanks for the advice guys. :thumbsup:
As I said I have been lucky and got hold of a Tipple quite cheaply -and am enjoying it.
At the moment the sounds coming out are OK but I can see ive plenty of work to do yet. It'll be a long time before I take it to our fortnightly session :D

I'm going to stick with my 'plastic' flute until I have a bit more experience of playing and a FAR better embouchere :) but I can well imagine spending more money later on when I've a bit more of an idea of what I might want. I've never known any musician that only had one instrument. :D :D :) :) :D

In my perception, flutes are particularly problematic in this regard. To quote a friend, “You first think that the flute is a small instrument and it doesn’t take up much space. That is, until you have a thousand of them.”

There's a Delrin Somers for sale on the "used" forum. I just got one. Nice tone and great in a bar brawl.

Thanks. My forum search missed it, and I also checked in Sold and Old.
