It’s sick

Why would anyone want a sick flute?
Virus ridden?
Broken?
Did you repair it?
I don't get it. :-?

I believe it's awesome, but 750 pounds.
I'm still trying to find an affordable f marching flute. I think there should be options, it's pity that "generation" don't produce Fs. If all the rest failes, I will get a Bb marching flute.

A question to Miller Browne owners.
Wtb: 5 or 6 keys?
Is A=440? If not, does the tuning slide help?

All I can say is that they seem to sell a lot of them, many people seem to use/have them, but it is a marching band flute. I have no personal experience, but have been contemplating buying one myself.

Yeah, that is exactly the one i have, but glossy. It's chromatic, but the Fs are sharp, so you have to blow it down, that is tricky ( the trickiest part is to stop pressing the air on the notes around Fs). The sound is quite strong, i expected it to be weaker.
Over all, I can recommend that flute to anyone who needs all the semitones and doesn't want to spend a fortune. Cheers.
