    Having never used a flute, how do they compare to short-reeds in learning how to use?

    Hi there Rcaron . The flute is different than the short reed in that it gives you more of that natural sound just by blowing air into it . You don't have to use voice inflection or hands nearly as much to create the different goose tone or deep goose tone .

    You might notice you don't have to pitch the notes off to break like say you would with the short reed in order to get that nice rich goose . You can almost blow through to get your break . I close my hands down on the end of the note when you break it , where as short reed I do the opposite I open my hand somewhat to an extent at the end of the break to throw the sound (think like a duck call).

    Many of us started out on flutes before shortreeds really took off . Now you don't hear of many guys still using flutes . Some say flutes are "easier" . It's a different animal in many ways than a short reed . But if you've been around calls and calling it's one those things a guy can pick up on quick with alittle practice and dedication .

    We are going to use them heavily this fall guiding and prototyping and maybe I will make a run of flutes for guys and we are going to test and see if giving them something different will give us an edge this year.
