what a pretty new flute

Well it came today!  A beautiful, shiny, new flute from Burkhart that I get to try for the next week.  It’s so exciting!  It’s been a long time since I seriously thought about buying a new flute, but it is time for a change.  There are so many flutes to choose from these days!  It wasn’t so long ago that there were only two real choices for serious flutists.  When it was time to get “the flute”, the one you went to college with or got just after graduation, you bought a Powell or Haynes.  Now there are lots of great flutemakers offering all kinds of options.  Wading through all those choices is overwhelming, but I think I have it narrowed down to two, and Burkhart is one.  Can’t wait to really play it!
