Paige Dashner Long, Director of the Metropolitan Flute Orchestra in
Summer Residence at New England Conservatory:
"I have been using a contrabass flute in my orchestra since 1991. With the addition of a contrabass,
my ensembles have a depth that is not possible in any other way.
The contrabass flute supports the bass flute section, as well as articulating in a similar manner,
creating a very beautiful ensemble sound. A cello, string, bass, or similar instrument with flute ensemble,
can mask the beautiful timbre of the bass flute section and articulates very differently.
With the addition of the contrabass flute to an ensemble, the repertoire possibilities are endless."
Patti Monson, Director of TACTUS -the MSM Contemporary Ensemble and Sequitur New Music Ensemble:
"My new contrabass flute is magical!! Everything about it is crafted magnificently.
It has a rich sound, a beautiful tonal/pitch center, and excellent response.
The mechanism is comfortable and sophisticated.
I highly recommend these instruments."
