Are Flutes Out?

Postby JBO » Mon Nov 20, 2006 1:13 pm

It seems that short reeds have taken over these past few years. Are flutes out? Are there any true flute fans still :eek: out there?
Did I call the shot?

I still like flutes, but short reeds are so much easier to carry and you can do so much with them. So thats why I made the switch and if you get comfortable with a short reed you will too. :salude:

I am a long time flute user, but last year made the short read change and will never go back. With that said there are still some nice sounding flutes out there. I have a fried that just can't get a short read to do anything. I gave him one of my flutes and he got the hang of it fairly fast. I don't see anything wrong with them, but I can sure make a lot more sounds and sound like more birds with a short read. I am sure there are some that can really play a flute, but I do much better on the short read.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
