After i graduated from high school and decided i was going to keep up with music, i called Midbell and said I was interested in upgrading.
You sent me a beautiful, open holed, gold (with pretty engraving) lip plate Selmer Omega flute. The instant i played the first note, i knew that it was going to be my very first "expensive, grown up" purchase! 20 years later, the engraving is almost worn off from all of the use it has gotten. (i named her Elvis).
My flute has had many adventures-played at Renaisance fairs, band concerts, farmers markets, in church, Basilica, Cathedral, and Wells Fargo Arena in an orchestra. (a student "outdoor performance" flute has been recently added to the family, as well as "tiny Elvis", my piccolo)
Best place to start a music journey. Very very helpful and informative. Logan is awesome! Helped me get my daughter started drumming.
