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."
