After a couple of decades away from the instrument I am returning to the lovely sound that is the flute. I had around 8 years as a concert flute player but now feel more attracted to Celtic and other folk traditions of the British Isles. I recently purchased a Susato D whistle and have been playing that as well. Now wish I had gotten the low G since those D's are really high pitched. Today I ordered, after reading many recomends here, a Doug Tipple D flute. Can't wait to get it.

Welcome aboard. :)

I came hear looking for flute info, & ended up buying a load of whistles too - recently purchased a Damian Thompson delrin keyless, to go with my Boehm flute & piccolo, (also have a Tony Dixon ABS piccolo, & a couple of fifes). I lost my embouchure for flute, but am slowly regaining it now.

Chiff - another thread says it's the sound you get when you start a note.
