Suggestions / Found a solid way to carry the flute...
« on: August 06, 2019, 10:48:55 am »
I've been using the clip, and still finding it slides off at random times.  Not a big issue, but it caused me to tinker.

I finally found the best way to carry it.  All it takes is a simple stretchy hair tie.

So I take the hair tie, loop it around a belt loop and through itself.  Then I just hook the Coda to it. 

That's it.

It attaches and detaches with an audible click, and has just enough dangle and give to not pop loose when moving around.  Sitting doesn't even cause it to slide up off the belt. 

I'm sure it could be done with a leather thong as well, but mine was a quick solution.

Enjoy your day!

For the record:  Carl contacted me within minute of me finding my coda, so, no harm no foul. 

Nice fellow. 

Still going to look at a safer way to transport it, since I still dropped it in the car.  That said, he mentioned he was looking at other clip designs that work with the coda. 

I'll be looking at a more in depth review of it as I get a touch more experience with it, but I can already say I can hammer out a little tune with it across both octaves.

Sorry for the false alarm!

First, I want to make it clear this is assuredly my own fault, and not placing blame.

I think the coda clip needs a locking system to keep it on the belt. 

Due to me loosing mine within the first week of getting it.

I keep a pretty good eye on my items:  keys, wallets, etc.  In this case the nature of the item has lead to a situation that I don't know where I might have even lost it.  Sadly, I can only assume since I never heard a clatter of it falling off my belt, that it was bushed off when sitting in a restaurant or other place I might have sat down, leading to it not being making noise when it was dropped.

The point in this case being, it may need a clip that has an angled end to keep it from sliding easily off the belt. 

Again, not a complaint.  I actually had the thought before I lost it.  It obviously was not a strong enough thought to keep it from happening.

Got the package in the mail when I got home.  Came with a songbook manual, bag and the like.  EDC seemed in good shape from the trip.

Fingering chart isn't bad, and the music sheets are in standard music notation, helping to train people up on reading music by eye.  Came with some good starter songs, and a ton of more complex ones too.

The original Mountain was a tight bar that worked well being worn around the neck, and this new one has a spot to add a cord to it.  That being said, it also has a built in clip that works decent for attaching to the belt.  Oddly, it looked like it was supposed to be screwed to the EDC, but is using some double sided tape to secure it.  Seems solid, for now, but no idea how it will hold up long term.

The low register sounds pretty much how I remember the Mountain to have been (gave it to my daughter), and the Higher register sounds reasonably clear.

I can't say much about the quality of tone yet, since it plays a touch differently than the Mountain in terms of breath and finger position, so will need time to get used to it.

Moisture seems to build faster than the Mountain, but again, we'll see in the long term.

Seems lightweight, but solid enough.  Not like the Mountain, but that was a small black brick.  This is more curvy and interesting to look at.

Overall, I feel the price point is good for the quality I'm seeing.

Now to see how this will work with a mandolin for music design.
