    Yamaha YFL-421; plateau keys, offset G, silver head, body, and C-foot

    Beater:
    Gemeinhardt M2 - bought used as a replacement for a Grassi, given (in a moment of crass stupidity) to daughter of previous girl-friend…

    I do have the B foot, but it's not silver plated. The mouth-peice is silver lol. I asked them when I ordered it, and they said it was solid silver.

    This one time at band camp...


    Ah screw it.
     
  11. Yeah - i'm a flute player. Been playing flute for about 18 years or so, but didn't start doing the experimental band thing until just a few years ago. I'm in a band called Motosota - you can check out a flute tune called Machete Benz at www.myspace.com/motosota if you want to hear what I sound like.

    Play a Gemeinhart I've played since high school - a solid silver thing with b foot and offset G. Someday i'll upgrade, but high quality flute prices are pretty insane.

    Also want to get an alto or bass flute someday - played it in college and really dug it.

    Can I talk any of you into "playing the jazz flute" for the rest of us? Ron Burgundy style. :D
