I'm currently playing one of Ralph Sweet's earlier keyless flutes in rosewood. It
plays okay - nothing spectacular, although that could just as easily be the player - but Tony Dixon's three-piece polymer flute
is taunting me.

Do any of you fine folks have opinions on either of these instruments? Would moving from my Sweet to one of Dixon's be an upgrade, or a lateral move?

Thanks,

Ralph Sweet's flutes vary tremendously. Without knowing the relative playability of the one you have, it's difficult to say whether a Dixon 3-piece polymer would be an improvement upon it. I have tried lots of Sweet flutes and have fallen in love with some of them. So...a Dixon 3-piece tunable is nowhere near as good as a good Sweetheart flute, but a bad Sweetheart flute is not as good as a Dixon 3-piece tunable. Hmph.
