''The RS Berkeley Bass Flute is a really great instrument The mechanics have a smooth, solid feel allowing it to respond like the smaller C flute. The scale is right in there and the tone is superb!''

''The Sopranino is made with excellent craftsmanship and integrity. This instrument will be included in my musical voice.''
