Very positively surprised!

01.02.2017
I have ordered the Aulos flute as an exercise instrument. I had no previous experience with plastic flutes and did not have too high expectations and must say that I have been very positively surprised.


Here is my rating:

Intonation: True.

Sound: Good, warmer and fuller than I expected from plastic. She does not sound like a good wood flute, but in her price class she takes it loose with the wood flutes.
One disadvantage of this flute (which will probably be the case with all plastic flutes) is that it becomes very wet very quickly and thus becomes hoarse. Already after the first three minutes, the flute was so hoarse that it hardly produced any sound. But no problem! Simply rinse and water 1: 1, flush the flute head with it, let it dry and hoarseness is no problem after hours of playing.

Address: Wonderful. The flute also speaks well in height. Here, in addition to the robustness, I think the greatest advantage over woodflutes in the same price class, on which sounds in the higher position are usually only to be played under pain.

Drumherum: Great. Everything you need, the bag is great, the grifftabelle is detailed, cleaning stick and fat available, and I never knew before, how great a thumb support is.


Conclusion: The flute was a good choice, I would buy it again and would / will advise anyone of a low priced soprano flute to this flute.

An excellent instrument to stop

SébastienB, 01.06.2011
I'm a beginner flutist but the Aulos 503B is not my first instrument. What immediately attracted me to this product is the quality of the sound. It is soft enough for a soprano flute made of plastic. The curved jar offers good flexibility to the breath: notes are more fluid and expressive than with the entry level instruments I have tried before.

The flute looks sturdy and the finishes are well made. The beak is wide and holds perfectly between the lips. A priori, the saliva evacuates well and the instrument does not clog too much. The thumb hole, lined, is quite soft to the touch, which makes the fingers pleasant. However, it is possible to regret the absence of alignment marks making it possible to assemble the three parts more easily.

This flute is delivered with a removable thumb support ring, interesting to improve the holding of the instrument. The other accessories are rudimentary, but the essential is there (tablatures, swab, storage pocket). A cleaning cloth would have been appreciated.

I find the value for money very satisfactory. For an affordable price, the 503B offers a good sound, a real comfort of play and makes you want to progress. I therefore recommend this instrument to all beginners.

Despite its infamous classroom or beginner's image, the recorder is in fact just as difficult to play well as most other instruments.
