What is a step-up flute?
The first flute for the majority of flute players will be designed with ease of sound production as the focus. After a few years of practice and progression, flute players begin to desire more from an instrument. Not only are they required to play more complex and speedier technical passages, but their tonal requirements subtly change from ease of sound to quality of tone. This is where the student will look at the purchase of the 'step-up' instrument. This usually brings in to consideration models with headjoints of 925 silver or sometimes also with 925 silver body tube as well.
Do I need to oil my Trevor James wooden lip plate, wooden headjoint or wooden flute?
Any Grenadilla wood on your flute will be easy to care for. You will simply need to protect it from extremes of temperature and dryness. If you do not have a nut allergy then almond oil is by far the most frequently used. Take a small amount of almond oil on a cotton wool bud and wipe it over the wood. Never soak or over-oil any wood. Please note that it is vitally important to source an alternative oil should you have a nut allergy!
