 Newby Clarinet to Flute
Author: perryg114

Wife wants to learn the flute. She is pretty good on the Clarinet. Just bought her an old Gemeinhardt Flute M-1 off ebay that I thought I would repad and let her start playing it. I was reading that some of these old flutes were tuned to 445 instead of 440. Is this true and can it be fixed with a new head joint or does it need to be fixed for someone learning? It is serial number 1931 which puts it around 1955 vintage. Should I bother re padding it or should I make a lamp out of it?
