I know this is kind of a re-post of my thread a few days ago, but my question is what are different ways of trying out flutes, other then places online like Fluteworld, and Flutes of NYC? Like how do you guys do it? I wish I could go to a flute fair but not now.Thanks.

I just tried the ones from various music stores near me. My flute teacher also got a few from a store that is pretty close with my school for music stuff..

But I ended up getting my flute from Flute World. My music store wouldn't order it for me unless I KNEW i was going to buy it, and I didn't know if i was or not.

look up Haynes, Powell, etc on the web and contact them, they may send out flutes on trial as they are insured for trials, also try www.yourfluteworks.com and ask Anne about her trial policy...

Thanks I now have a few ideas. I never thought of just contacting the flutes company as an idea.

I have done dealings with many flute companies and I must say that my favorite doing business with is Miyazawa. They are always very friendly and helpful. They would be a great place to contact. Brannen is another one.

it depends on what standard of flute your looking for, but music shops and contacting companys who have flutes that you want to try.

Depending on where you live, there might be a regional flute fair (or even the National Flute Association convention) that would give you the opportunity to try out a wide variety of flutes (albeit in less than ideal surroundings). Most have rooms where you can try out flutes away from the ruckus in the exhibition hall.
