I have decided to upgrade to a more intermediate level flute. I have found these three different flutes but I am having trouble to choose which one. The first one is a YAMAHA 362H - OFFSET G, B footjoint for 1427.99 USD. The second one is an AZUMI BY ALTUS MODEL AZ-2 - OFFSET G, B footjoint for 1509 USD. The last one is a PEARL QUANTZ SERIES FLUTE MODEL 665 with a Forza headjoint for 1233.70 USD. Which of these flutes do zou recomennd purchasing as an intermediate step up flute.

BTW, all of these flutes were found on the FCNY (flute center of new york) website.

Which one do you sound the better on and feels really comfy for your fingers and is the more durable flute? Now you got the answer.

All seem good, but best ask your teacher. She can play and you can listen and YOU decide. I have tried some flutes and read enough to realise it depends on how you blow ( how much air, do u like resistance, each headjoint is a bit peculiar in how you blow) and how you perceive the tone colors (subjective) and how you feel about the build and mechanism (light, heavy, response etc). I have tried Altus, Azumi, Marumatsu, Yamaha, etc. Each has its strengths. Aso consider one with good resale, because soon like me you would want an advanced - Marumatsu GX, ALtus 1507, Yamaha 874, Powell, etc. I remember 2 arguing over Altus 1107 and Marumatsu GX, i own both and each is JUST different and i love both. For the next next flute read this - https://www.bandinstrumentsguide.com/flute-buying-guide/best-professional-flutes/ i remember a few blogs taht suggested a few very good intermediate that play like advanced at a good price. sonare or?
