Value for price

Posted by Ferne (on 2/25/16)
I was looking for a basic alto flute to play for ensembles, on the lower end pricing, but not too pleased with any that vendors had to offer at a recent flute convention exhibit. I was ready to "settle" for one which was quite playable and affordable, but thought I'd try the Gemeinhardt table before making a decision, and I'm very glad I did! Ali herself was there to demonstrate her signature model, and when I saw the price tag, my jaw dropped and I fell in love with it! Beautiful response and consistent sound and intonation through all the octaves. Though I was set to spend less than half, when my nonmusical husband heard me play the flutes I'd picked out, he encouraged me to buy the "Ali". He could hear the "expensive" sound, and had guessed it to be somewhat costlier than it is. It is a heavier flute, but it being an alto (I chose the curved headjoint), it's actually easier for me to hold because I can adjust how close it sits next to my body. It is beautiful to look at and play, and I encourage flutists to definitely check this model out.
