I haven't been on in a while with school and stuff, but I wanted to let everyone know that I sent off my Pearl to be COA'd and have a couple pads replaced...It came back in the most remarkable playing condition I have ever heard! I had just gotten back from the Florida Flute Fair, where I had chosen the instrument that was going to eventually replace my flute (a Jack Moore, eventhough he wasn't at the convention...a friend of mine plays on one, and compared to everyone there, it rocked!). Now that I got it back I think I will be quite happy with it for a while! It will definitely get me through undergrad and most likely even Masters.

BTW Flutist06...I did try Tom Green whilst I was there. Tom seemed less than enthusiastic about being there, and to top it off, I didn't think his flutes were that amazing. There were two Pearls, one silver and one gold, that played better than any of his. I also didn't like the funky C# trill key...eek! I could slip a finger and entirely screw some passage up. LOL I am glad that they work for you, though. My top faves were Pearl, Nagahara, and Brannen.

Forgot to post the site of the woman that did the repair! D'OH! She is amazing, and I really think everyone should give her a shot!

Her name is Sherry.

Glad to hear your Pearl came back in such good shape! It's amazing what a little time with a tech can do, isn't it?

Well, Tom is a little bit awkward at those types of things. I remember when I bought my flute from him I felt a little uncomfortable talking to him, but once he gets to know you, he's a really nice guy. As for the flutes, there's no problem with not liking them. They play amazingly (or at least the one I own does) for me, but I can't expect that they would be everyone's top choice. I absolutely love having the C# trill where it is, though. It takes a little getting used to, but it's a lot more convenient, especially when you're trying to use it in combination with the other trills. Did you get a chance to try his new ergonomic foot, or one with the gizmo on the left of the D# spatula? I'd be interested to know what you thought of these comfort-wise.

Yes, I can also recommend Sherry. She is wonderful and is such a delight to talk with. She re padded my Miyazawa and is very maticulous with her work.

Dennis, what about a Powell? Hahahaha!!!!

Don't start on the horrific display of Powells that were there Kate...There wasn't a single Powell in the entire exhibit that I liked! I am not sure if he had the ergonomic footjoint there, Chris. It didn't have the gizmo any different...

"horrific display"????
Powell?? What was so horrific about their display? Were there flutes falling apart or something when you played them? I was only joking as I know you dispised them before you even tried one.

The selection was just horrifying! Powell wasn't there, but Fluteworld hada few, and JL Smith had a few. None were spectacular...and I didn't know what I was playing on when I went to these booths. I just had them hand me flutes to play. When I decided if I liked it or not..I looked at the name...every single Powell got a "No!" I'm really sorry Kate! At least I disliked Chris' brand also! HAHAAH!

No need to apoligize. I don't expect everyone to love them.
It was just the term "horrific" that I was wondering about. That all make sense. Prism is now crying.. lol!!!

<Added>

PS. I did buy Prism on my very own with my very hard earned money. Ha!
