Feedback on the GUO New Voice Flute:
"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."
