an online community for flutists.
Last month I bought a Briccialdi "Belcanto" model because I was attracted from the keys decorations.
In my opinion it's actually the best study flute I have ever played. It's a great quality/price ratio and it has SOLDERED TONE HOLES!!! The padding work is perfect and on my request Briccialdi installed on my flute the Pisoni S2 pads (they are surnamed the Italian Straubinger pads). It sounds lovely.I really suggest it, at beginner students... instead of the usual Yamaha 200 Series or Pearl 505. Ot's a strong alternative
Hi! And what about the titanium stopper plug? I've never tried a flute with it. Anyway I was interested to this brand because I thought they also produce professional futes, but they don't :(
However, thank you for your opinion! :)
Yes, I know Falaut magazine, I suscribed to it because I'm Italian :)
I also spoke with Briccialdi's Chief Executive Manager, and he told me too about the next titanium+zirconium stopper. It seems to be interesting, but I wonder if, in this way, the headjoint wouldn't be too heavy...
Do you spoke with Marco!?!?!? ahahahah! it's a fantastic, nice person. I was with him and Alessandro 2 hours, and they make me laugh during all time! And he's a humble and prepared flutist :D :D :D
It's very difficult to meet people specialized in built flutes.
I think each stopper in each headjoint produce a different effect. You have always to test.
And...many times happens that you try something..and you like it. But after 2 months you get tired of it...and so you want to change sound again.
Titanium is really really really light!! it's the lightest metal in the world!!
So...the headjoint will not be heavy
I spoke with Marco just yesterday! :D He's really nice, he gave me many good tips!
