“They just don’t make ‘em the way they used to!”
At Gemeinhardt, we make ‘em BETTER than we used to!
We’ve all heard the saying, and we’ve all said the words ourselves, when talking about household appliances, cars, lawnmowers, and even musical instruments. “They just don’t make ‘em the way they used to!”
But what if we told you at Gemeinhardt, we make instruments even better than we used to? Many people who own Gemeinhardt flutes from the 60’s, 70’s, and into the 80’s will tell you they have had very little work done to their instruments throughout the years, and still love how they play. Then you will hear some talk about the 90’s when Gemeinhardt, like many other manufacturers were turning out instruments in mass quantities due to demand, and therefore even though a great product, was not up to par to some people’s standards. Well, we are here to tell you, Gemeinhardt flutes have never been to the quality standards they are today since Kurt Gemeinhardt was building them himself! The amount of hours put into each and every instrument reaches well beyond what was ever possible in the past and still have affordable instruments.
The beauty of what we are telling you are that today’s Gemeinhardt instruments have the quality any musician would expect AND the affordability that allows for obtainability. It should go without saying; but without quality what is the use of affordability? We have been working hard to give you both.
If the world wants more quality musicians, we need to ensure they have quality instruments worthy of their expression.
This is why we are now very proud to present the 1SP student flute to the Gemeinhardt family. We look forward to it assisting aspiring flutists just as much as the highly popular Gemeinhardt 2SP student flute has.
