Audiofanzine FR's review (Sankyo - CF 201 - Tete Argent)

By Audiofanzine FR, 12/12/2008
(Originally written by mamacello/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
This Sankyo (201) is fantastic. It's not made out of silver but it has almost the same mechanism as the much more expensive silver model... I just can't get my eyes off the beautiful French keys ... It's my small treasure. The mechanism is incredibly smooth and accurate. The mouthpiece is perfect for me, and it produces a large and percussive sound. It was love at first sight as soon as I heard it...

I bought it secondhand 7 months ago (the previous owner sold it to buy the silver model). I tested the silver model for a long time but the much higher price for the material wasn't justified. So I don't regret my choice.

I previously played a MIyazawa with silver head for many years. They are just not comparable! Since I bought the Sankyo, the MIyazawa hasn't come out of its case.

The CF 201's value for money is great. I don't think I will ever replace this instrument (or perhaps for the same one with a B foot...

peluche's review (Sankyo - CF 201 - Tete Argent)

Very good quality / price ratio (Pearl - PF-525)

By gg.2705, 27/12/2013
I use since July 2009.

After almost 20 years of loyal service, my first flute (Jupiter) showed some signs of wear (worn pads, some failed fingerings ...).

I wanted to go upmarket, for an instrument that would allow me a faster game and a well-rounded attack.

I tried to compare a Yamaha Jupiter and equivalent range (study model with silver plate). In the end I preferred the Pearl.
The seller had me particularly recommended for bossa, a style that I like ... which certainly guided my choice!

Recently, just a quick visit to shop for correct fingering coming out hard, if RAS!
After a few years of regular use, this flute therefore seems a very good price / quality ratio.
