I bought Jupiter Dimedici 1011 for my 12 year old son who plays for the local Youth Symphonic Orquestra. The instructors (one of them has a flute doctorate from one of our universities and vast teacheing experience and myself agree that this is a great instrument. Smooth response, warm and steady tone, really well built and also beatiful. We compared it with the orchestra's two Armstrong and three Yamahas and we think it plays better than all of them. The tone is much better than the... (read more)

I've recently purchased a diMedici 1011 and I've never once regretted my decision. I was enthralled since I've played my very first note and I still am. It's certainly the flute of choice after upgrading from an Armstrong 107E! It's tone quality is absolutely lovely compared to all the other flutes I've tried. Any "genre" of tone is able to be played in the 1011 diMedici, from dark and "sexy" to light and "fluffy". Its appearance is the definition of "elegant"; my 1011 has engravings, which... (read more)

It offers 4 headjoints D1 through D4. My 1011 came with the D2, which is a fine headjoint. Great tone quality with strong bottom end, sweet midrange and highs, capable of wide dynamics, with tone color... (read more)

I bought the Jupiter diMedici 1011 Flute after four years with a 911, which I still play. Jupiter have made changes in the last few years; the silver plating is better, and the G sharp key is smaller. I have found the silver tube improves the sound greatly. I recently fitted a second-hand Sankyo head-joint to it, and the sound is better still.
Controlling the sharp tuning in the final octave is a problem when I play with a wind band.
If you are upgrading to a flute in this price range,... (read more)
