Quick Overview

Antique Olwell Restored Bonn 8 Key Flute

This Antique Olwell Restored Bonn 8 Key Flute is an incredible flute in amazing condition. This 8 key flute with silver fittings was made around 1860 and unusually, has a Half-line head, which was very unusual in London flutes except for Monzani. This flute has small holes (the no. 4 hole is 7.2mm, which makes this Very Small, according to Olwell's system of flute taxonomy) and a very sweet tone, yet clear and with some projection, now that it has been doctored by Pat. It plays at A 440 with head pulled out a bit to 12 or 14 mm, but the head is very short, to accommodate higher pitches.

It's an amazing player with it's current headjoint, but it will also fit a standard Olwell headjoint- which makes it sound like it's been supercharged! So, if you already have a keyless Olwell, you'll have an extra bonus with this beauty. This flute is great for someone with medium to smaller hands wanting a sweet Rudall tone and Patrick Olwell with his tweaking, has still managed to make it a powerful flute. This is a fantastic instrument. Blayne wants to keep it, but he can't have them all!
