I play several different flutes, some unusual. Each flute requires slightly different adjustments in how they are played but I love the changes of tone the different materials and designs have on the basic flute sound.
-The concert flute is my first love and the flute with the most flexibility in scales, accidentals and the widest range. I play a Sankyo Prima.
-The alto flute has a wonderful lush sound in its lower register. Its also the heaviest flute I play. I play a Trevor James alto.
-I play 2 different sizes of glass flutes. The one in C is similar to a piccolo or a fife. The one in G is halfway between a regular flute and a picc. Their sound is bright and cheerful and a kick to play in the rain. These are both from Hall Crystal Flutes.
-The one-keyed Baroque flute sounds soft and quiet up close but always surprises me with how far its sound carries. Mine was made by Daniel Dietz.
