 Recommendations on Flute
Author: KML

Several years ago, I got lots of good advice on buying an oboe for a daughter, and now I am on the Flute BBoard looking for recommendations for a flute for a different daughter. She is in 10th grade and will play flute for two more years. She is finding that it would be a good idea to upgrade from her current flute (silver plated closed hole) to a sterling silver open hole flute. I'd like to buy used and would appreciate recommendations on what to purchase and what to avoid purchasing.

Purchasing an oboe did turn out to be difficult, but the advice on the Oboe BBoard allowed me to avoid two bad purchases: one of a very old Fox oboe and one of an oboe that the repair person later told me broke in half!

Our daughter loves music but does not intend to be a music major. She is not sure if she would like to continue playing the flute after high school. We could sell her current flute, a guitar she bought with her own money but then decided she preferred the ukelele, and a trumpet that two of our children tried out before they moved to other instruments. This gives us some money for a flute, and we are looking at a price range $500 - $1,200 or so. Thanks.
