Antique flute most likely of German origin ~ 1930 or newer. A Meyer type flute stamped "Geo. Cloos" (U.S. Dealer). Serial number 9510. Recently restored with fresh pads. All keys work. The bottom C/C# keys being a bit tough to play due to their design.
The "L.P." marking denotes "Low Pitch". Wants to be played slightly lower than modern A=440hz pitch though can be played at modern pitch with the slide pushed in all the way. Tuning of the flute requires the player to lip up/down a good bit to play with good intonation. Does have a nice tone though does not speak strong as most would desire for Irish traditional music. Is a nicely restored Meyer type flute though and a nice collectors piece. Comes with a newer wooden box as well as the original.
