Words from the flute makers and creators
By Tom Lacy:
One potential problem with flutes with a B foot is the C-C# adjustment. If the cork gets compressed or the C# lever is bent, it is difficult if not impossible to close all three keys simultaneously. My unique design alleviates this problem by adding a second clutch for the C# key on the C key bridge.
In my experience, the first place to feel lost motion is normally on the A key. My design has the A tail make a right angle parallel to the thumb keys. This allows for a larger surface area for felt, eliminating the chance for compression.
From Trevor Wye...
When the scale is bad, the player needs to develop special intonation control skills to overcome the faulty workmanship of the maker. Some have managed to do this with great dexterity in the same way that a fine violinist might still manage to play a badly tuned violin in tune. But why should they? The remedy is easy. Buy a flute with a good scale.
What is important is not how to correct a flat or sharp note, but the perfect control of intonation which allows the player to use loud and soft notes, crescendos and diminuendos to be truly expressive, something exceptional amongst flute players worldwide.
