These models do not have the great tone of true "baroque"
types, but they make up for it with the charming nature that many people
think is typical of all one-keyed flutes. Some players feel the rococo
type of flute has an easier high register than baroque instruments, and
some say that it has a weaker low register. Neither of these criticisms
really applies to good baroque or rococo instruments in general--perhaps
poor modern copies are responsible for the misapprehension. For more detail,
