    Hi all
    I am looking at getting either a Tenor or a voice flute at a=415 I do a lot of period playing in different specialist groups. I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on whether a Tenor in C or a Voice Flute in D would be better to get first?

    Any advice would be appreciated,

    I should think a tenor in C would be better to get first. They are much more widely used in recorder ensembles. In fact, I think voice flutes are most often used to play transverse flute music on recorder. If you were going to be playing such music with a “specialist group” (it’s hard to know what you mean by this), I would think they’d more likely want an actual flute.

    Also, you’d have a larger choice of instruments with tenor. Seems to me that voice flutes are so specialized that they are all high-end instruments. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a mid-priced one.
