Earlier this year I got my second flute, a Copley & Boegli three piece Delrin flute with silver rings, and I’m very grateful to the kind friend who bought me such an wonderful gift. It’s an amazing instrument, with a strong, rich tone, and the cut of the embouchure hole makes it rather forgiving. If you want more details of its many fine qualities, visit some of the threads about it over on the Chiff & Fipple forums, such as this one. As much as I still like my Tipple, I think this was definitely an upgrade. It’s taken me some time to adjust to the differences between the two instruments, but now that I’ve gotten used to it I think my Copley Delrin and I will be very happy together for a long time to come.
