E. Baack Cocus & Silver 8-Key

Regular price $1,199.99 Sale

Condition: Antique (~Mid 19th Century).  Good.  Crack repairs to headjoint and barrel (pictured). Has been recently repadded and the foot keys seal ok - perhaps even better with a drop of oil on them.

This flute reminds me very much of Peloubet's flutes.  As Edward Baack was known as both a manufacturer and dealer (also in the US - New York), one does wonder if Peloubet ever made flutes for him.  Tuning is very good - a good A440 player.  Tone is sweet - an easy player.  The headjoint though it has some sealed cracks, does play well.  This flute does really come alive when I put a modern headjoint on it (My Olwell headjoint in this case).  Would be a good candidate to have someone fashion a new headjoint to get the greatest potential out of this instrument.  Still, very lovely as is.
