Does all that I ask, and more!
10.12.2015
I have had this instrument for just over a month and given it an extensive 'work-out', even using it on a professional concert.
My usual flute is a Sankyo HMDH (CF501 in the current range) and I was looking for an inexpensive back-up instrument that had closed holes and an E- mechanism (as a multi-instrumentalist I often don't have sufficient time to practise enough and the Sankyo needs constant work with open holes, centre action and no E- mechanism). With its' B-foot, I just had to try this instrument.

The Kotori KF-CBEO appears well made and feels comfortable to play. It blows freely in all registers but I feel that the response is not as instantaneous and that of the yamaha student models, especially on the lower notes. The dynamic range is also, as yet, slightly limited but I have seen a marked improvement over the last four weeks so imagine that once fully 'blown-in' this will improve.

At the price I am amazed at this instrument. It gives students the opportunity to have a B-foot instrument that plays and feels as if it cost three times as much. I even think that with an after market solid-silver head I could be happy to use it in place of my normal instrument.

Well done Thomann.... yet again!

Took a chance...

Took a chance on this one, so glad I did!
Sounds like, feels like and plays like a flute twice the price.
Definitely a high quality bargain!

A delight to play
Adje, 20.05.2019
I was looking for a flute with closed holes and a B-foot.
For this price range, this is definitely an excellent choice. The flute is beautiful, comfortable, and a true delight to play. You can see that it is a factory-made intrument, but for 429 euros, this is to be expected. The price/performance ration could hardly be better, and I can definitely recommend it.

In ihrer Art einzigartig!
stufftie, 22.01.2014
Ich bin seit fast zwei Jahrzehnten Musiker und wollte mich mit Querflöte erweitern. Demnach bin ich kein Flöten-Experte, aber als großer Freund dieses Instrumentes und dessen Klanges war ich sofort von der sehr leichten Ansprache und dem kernigen Ton angetan. Die (hüpschen) Klappen mit den sehr großen Griffmulden fühlen sich schön geschmeidig an und der rechte kleine Finger findet die großzügig geschnittenen Hebel recht schnell. Nichts klappert, das Kopfstück lässt sich leichtgängig in den Korpus einfügen und entgegen aller Meinungen über Flöten mit H-Fuß empfinde ich diese Kotori - Flöte als nicht besonders schwer. Sie ist dadurch sogar gut ausbalanciert.
Etwas erschrocken war ich über Schellackreste am Bb - Gismo, die aussahen wie fehlerhafte Versilberung! Diese ließen sich zum Glück leicht mit dem mitgelieferten Microfasertuch entfernen. Leider waren an manchen Stellen weitere Schellack- und Ölreste sowie kleine Kratzer zu finden. Aber wirklich störend auffallen tun diese nicht.

Vergleichbare Flöten anderer Marken / Hersteller für den doppelten Preis sind meistens nicht so gut ausgestattet wie dieses Instrument und klingen zumeist auch nicht einmal deutlich besser. Die Kotori klingt brilliant, aber nicht unangenehm spitz. Ab der dritten Oktave dürfte es etwas weicher sein, aber wer will bei einem so schönen Instrument zu so einem fairen Preis schon frotzeln? ;-)

Edit: jetzt nach zwei Jahren bekommt die Versilberung dunkle Flecken. Habe immer gut geputzt, kein Silberputztuch, sondern ein Brillenputztuch verwandt und die Flöte überwiegend im Ständer gehabt. Auch Fingerabdrücke sind nie lange drauf geblieben. Naja. Nun hat sie ein leichtes Muster. Macht sie sympathisch.
