Elody - the perfect illusion

04.05.2016
I am a proud owner of an Elody, as a concert block flutist playing regularly with my band and also in Solobereich.

The past history of my Elody:

1. Get wrong model after purchase.
2. Complaint, return, weeks of waiting ...
3. get new flute: Elody Roar 5959 Birnbaum.
After the first acoustic-electrical test I have noticed relatively quickly the following error points:

- Condensate runs out underneath the block!
- the block moves, does not fit exactly in the head!
- the rubber thumb holder is too thin, uncomfortable when playing for a long time
- included cable is too short
- the flute case is not as robust as it looks

These errors I have not waited for 1666 euros (original price of the producer scarcely 2000 euros!).

Positive experiences:
- really great design, comfortable to hold
- Triple flap works well, the deep E sounds perfect
- mood perfect, high position good playable
- built-in pickup works perfectly

4. Complaint with the Thomann customer service and then personal complaint also with the Mollenhauer.
5. Return to Mollenhauer service, wait ...
6. Get my Elody back, and:

- the same error occurs! The block does not fit exactly and condensation water drips from the rear side of the block (also air loss!) Was obviously annoying.
- small scratches on the flute case (beauty defect)

Positive: as desired, I got a thicker rubber thumb holder.

7. Further complaint to the Mollenhauer.
8. Return to Mollenhauer service, wait ...

(Mollenhauer gave me a replacement Elody for this time, so I could make my appearances in the meantime.)

9. Elody get back, and: fits everything, the block has been exchanged.
Incomprehensible error point:
- medium-sized dolle on the suitcase (beauty fault), but how can an instrument workshop impress a flute case so firmly? (Mailing was ok, cardboard from outside not damaged)

10. My Elody is back in operation and I am currently after this months of history very satisfied with it. Everything else depends only on my music and my band ...

Elody is not a toy (actually also not something cheap for this quality) but a great instrument for every musician, the recorder can play at the highest level / wants.

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