Bill McBirnie Demo on Shining Piper Fife+

Bill McBirnie is a jazz and Latin flute specialist based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has studied with renowned American flutist, Samuel Baron, distinguished Canadian flutist and composer, Robert Aitken, as well as Cuban charanga legend, Richard Egues.  Bill’s extraordinary level of skill as a  flutist also prompted a personal solicitation from no less than Sir  James Galway to serve as his Resident Jazz Flute Specialist at Sir Jame's Official web site. Bill is well known for his outstanding technique.  However, he is also  recognized as an exceptional improviser (notably in the bebop, swing and Latin idioms) as demonstrated by his numerous recordings as a sideman  with the likes of Junior Mance, Irakere, Memo Acevedo and Emilie-Claire  Barlow. Needless to say, Bill has performed and recorded extensively  with Toronto's finest musicians and has been a longstanding charter  member of Bernie Senensky's Moe Koffman Tribute Band.

Feedback on the GUO Musical Instrument:

"We offered a few nearby professional  flutists the opportunity to spend a short time with the instrument.  Each one was immediately surprised at the high quality of tone they  could achieve although it was also clear that the tone could not be  forced. While some were amazed that they were playing a plastic flute  others thought it sounded like one. The consensus, however, is that the Guo New Voice flute is good instrument, perfect for travel as well as  outdoor performances when you do not want to use your silver, gold or  wooden flute due to location or conditions. Not to be limited to only  outdoor gigs or travel, the New Voice offers a blendable projecting tone suitable for orchestral, chamber, jazz, or solo playing. The  instrument arrives in a well-padded insured box and includes a sturdy  aluminum case, padded case cover with a zip pocket and shoulder strap,  cleaning cloth, cleaning rod, plugs, and other care instructions."

"The remarkable lightweight of the Guo  makes it an option for those with hand, arm or shoulder problems caused  by the weight of a metal flute."

"We are very pleased with the instruments, and think they offer a wide range of choice, and performance venues."

"This flute is made from a composite material which is super light-weight, and is actually lighter than the standard Grenaditte flute.The sound is brighter and much like that of a regular metal flute." 

"the GUO Flute has a sound closer to that of 'wood' rather than 'metal'."

"The flute is able to produce a very strong, robust sound in all  registers and plays low C and B effortlessly. Great idea if you plan to  play outdoors as it is waterproof!"

"The New Voice flute is amazingly lightweight and comfortable to hold.  The slightly textured body is easy to grasp and rests very comfortably  in the hands, perhaps even offering a bit of traction if you tend toward damp hands. The flute speaks easily with a bright yet mellow sound  that is an interesting hybrid of a wood and metal sound. The stronger  and more flexible your embouchure, the more control and variety you will have. Although it is only available with an in-line G and open holes,  it does come with comfortable plugs for those who prefer a closed-hole  instrument. The slightly larger left hand C key may come as a relief to players with larger hands or longer fingers. The New Voice is  available in a nice choice of neutral colors (most of which can be  mistaken for wood when viewed from a distance), all with black composite keywork. Intonation seems stable and it is a happy surprise that  multi-phonics, harmonics and some other extended techniques are also  possible on the instrument."




The GUO Musical Instrument is engineered from high-grade polymers, material  that is free from the distortion caused by temperature and humidity  changes in metal piccolos.

Because of its impervious nature to  temperature changes, it also requires no warming up as do metal piccolos and cannot crack as wooden piccolos may under colder conditions.

This  is a real advantage to players who are required to play their piccolos  in marching bands or in outside ensembles. It is very consistent in  timber and intonation throughout its three octaves. Its timber is  similar to that of wood at a fraction of the cost.

GUO's revolutionary material and padding makes weather change no longer a problem. People can play our flute in the rain or in the cold of  winter.

This is the ideal flute for marching bands or any other outside ensemble. Its light weight will be welcomed by some flutists and may  reduce the risk of injury in flute performance. In one case it has  helped an injured flutist, Mark Dannenbring, to regain total facility  and return to the concert stage.

You can literally own a "Colorful  flute",The New Voice flutes come in different colors.You can personalize your performance. In traditional flute making, high-pollution  processes like soldering, polishing and electroplating are necessary.  Our flute making successfully avoids these processes. We can proudly say that our flutes are truly low-pollution green products.

The material  is highly resistant to abrasion and will retain its pleasing appearance  without worry.  The new padding and mechanism will reduce the need for  repair.
