Do I need to change my flute!!?????    05:12 on Saturday, December 25, 2004 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

Hello to everybody...
I am in the 4th level in the flute here in Milan,Italy and I am still using my Gemeinhardth 2sp, the flute where I started to play... sometimes my teacher says that I need to change it because I am already in a higher level but sometimes he also says that it is still ok... I`m only curious if I need to change it or not for my level... Can you please help me...

P.s Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Change it if it is your limiting factor and you can afford to. Only you and your teacher know that.

2SP tends to be weak in volume, slow in response, and fuzzy in tone, compared with say even a student Yamaha.

Try some other flutes and see what you think.

I agree.. the only way for you to really know is to look at your personal situation, and go out and try some new flutes, see what you think then.

I have been playing for a while myself and I haven`t changed my flute. I have asked my teacher about it and he says that if you feel like your not getting the best results out of your flute you should consider changing it.
I hope that this helps.

"...if you feel like your not getting the best results out of your flute you should consider changing it..."

However, some people would play no better - indeed possibly worse - on a $20000 flute, because the limiting factor of their playing is their embouchure etc. So it may be little to do with what you "feel like".

A new flute will almost always give a psychological lift for the player. But that does not necessarily mean the player is playing better. They may just THINK they are, temporarily, until the endorphins wear off.
