I am a newbie, and I might be interested, but I can’t post in that forum yet because I’m new.

I’m looking for a Delrin keyless flute to get started...I’ve played Boehm flute for decades. If you are still selling it, and you’d consider a newbie, I guess our discussion about it will be here on this thread owing to my newbie status. :)

Much like an old-fashioned classifieds page, the UIE is only for the OP's topics and updates, not for responses from interested parties. Those will normally be deleted without notice. Please read the UIE's rules, for exceptions to this are as rare as hens' teeth.

Of course you may respond to topics and cross-posts in the regular forums as you have done here, and transactions may be initiated that way, so that takes care of that. If you wish to contact via PM, you first need to complete the requisite number of approved introductory posts (3) for full permissions.

As ever, please acquaint yourself with the CCCP. (← click) It's available to you at the top of every forum page, and contains pretty much everything you need to know about how things run around here.

Duly noted! Thank you. :)

I just wanted to post the reason I replied here so nobody felt the need to say, “Duh! Reply in the other forum, you dummy!” :wink:

Nah, we're a lot more relaxed than that. Besides, we have a policy against roughing up newbies, and you can find it in - wait for it - the CCCP. :wink:

Does anybody read the CCCP? It is rather lengthy. It isnt as bad as other fine print, but it is still a bit cumbersome for many people.

I kind of equate this to the law. Not knowing the law is no excuse for violations. But who has time to learn every little rule and regulation they could potentially violate in society? Most of us just use politeness and what common sense we possess and hope it is enough.

I did! But I am one of those weirdos who reads the terms and conditions and the fine print documents that come with prescriptions. :lol:

But I will say I threw caution to the wind and bought a flute on EBay just now. It seemed like a good deal on an M&E keyed flute that ended today, so I made a snap decision. Hopefully it was a good one. :o :)

Yeah, I totally get that. Often I wonder if there's any way to pare it down substantially, but I'll go back to it for a look, and it's really hard to accomplish, because the fine points are actually important. You could always read it on the loo. :wink:

Your last sentence illustrates the spirit of the whole thing; the CCCP itself, though, is there for the technicalities when you're unsure. You don't have to know all of it ahead of time; just use it for reference when it might matter, is all. For example, is there a ruling on crowdfunding? Yes indeed, so you can use the CCCP in a focused manner, because it's indexed for your ease of reference. It is a record of Admin rulings based on real events, and by now we've covered pretty much everything, I should think; if it's not in the index, it probably won't matter. But some topics are of necessity more involved than others, and there's no helping that. Hell, I have to refer to the CCCP myself. There's no way I can remember all of it. The important thing is that it's there for us when we need it. :)

Your UIE listing probably rolled over into Sold & Old if not bumped every 2 weeks, so there is no current post in the UIE, if you're still hoping to sell it. You might want to re-post, or ask a moderator to revive move back.

Yup, here it is:
viewtopic.php?f=36&t=109053

BTW, they're nice flutes. What type of embouchure did you get, modern square or traditional elliptical? Holes inline or offset?

Oh, man. Had that M&E not popped up on EBay, I’d still be interested. Good luck finding a new home for it.
