Here is the granddaddy of all threads on the subject. This was from nearly three years ago, but it got really deep and philosophical. Great thread.

Plains vs. Woodlands

Geoffrey thanks for bringing this discussion up. I just reread the whole thing. Sure miss the "Old" days of emotional sometimes heated (usually civil) discussions.

I think I'll stir something up.....

It's true that there have been some really lively threads over the years. Hard to believe that it has been more than three years since the forums were launched! That particular thread went way beyond flutes, and of course that specific thread was the one that made me want to recruit Hawk as a moderator. Warm heart, cool head. Hopefully some of the newer members who missed that one will get a chance to wade through it. Lot's of juicy stuff there.

I read that thread again last night and was amazed that I had enough spare time to write so many words! blink.gif

One of these days, I need to get old my trusty titanium spork http://cv.bw.sl.pt to read through the entire Plains vs. Woodlands thread. It should make an interesting late night reading.

Besides the differnce in the sound, I find that it is better to untie the block from my Ugly Boy flute (Woodlands style) to dry the flute, since the flue is large and dries easier this way. I don't have to do it on my Plains style cedar flute. Does anyone else have similar observations?

Actually, there are many that will tell you it's always a good idea to untie a block after you've played it hard, so it can dry. I don't take mine all the way off, just loosen them a little so some air can get in there. I do this with all my flutes.
Oh, and just for the record, I have no flutes with airways in the blocks. None, including my High Spirit mid-Gm. Don't tell Odell, but I redid it last year so the airway is now in the bore. I like it much better now.
