Do you have a B or C foot on the Di Zhao?

C foot. Started with the B foot, but found it too hard to play low C which I do regularly and never use the B note. Also wanted to make flute less heavy.

The C foot seems to help with the hard low D as well. My current Gemeinhardt, which I've had forever, has a C foot, the one I just ordered has a B foot. I'm hopeful it'll work out OK.

To me #2 has a little more brilliance, slightly more pronounced higher frequencies.
It sounds a little brighter, and for me more present, probably because of that.
Now which is silver, which wood?
From the common prejudice I would say the brighter one is silver, i.e. #2.!

I listened to both clips several times before reading the rest of the thread. I ran it through my stereo amplifier and speakers. I listened to #1 and thought it was great and then played #2 and liked it better.

I agree the differences are small, but I would have described them almost opposite of the first description. I found the higher notes in #1 were more on the harsh, shrill side, I would guess more of a clear tone. I would have called #1 more brilliant and brighter and its the sound I never liked from the silver flute back to when I started playing it in 4th grade. #2 seemed to me to have a more mellow sound.

I guessed that #1 was silver and #2 wood.
