Just wanted to note that I bought a 3- pc delrin made by Gary Somers and it is AMAZING. I'm so happy with it. It is actually easier to play than my rosewood. It was in the postbox over-night because we forgot to get the mail. My husband brought it in to me in the morning and it was cold. Most instruments don't really like being that cold...but it was playable within about a minute--and even though I'm a relative beginner, I thought it sounded pretty good (for my playing at least!).

:thumbsup:

That is a nice thing about Delrin flutes, They play great right out of the box! :party:

My first flute was a Forbes and I thought it was excellent. A wee bit sluggish on the ornaments but that was probably more my newbie status and not a fault of the Pratten design or workmanship. Wonderful range of sounds out of it...I really liked it.

I've got a Somers 5 pc Pratten in the mail from Doc. I'll post a video after I get it.
