"Stanesby Junior was the most distinguished woodwind instrument maker in the eighteenth century. Since only a few more than ten of the flutes he made are still in use at present, they are highly valuable. The Aulos's transverse flutes are precise reproductions of Stanesby Junior's work. They are modeled on the transverse flute which Stanesby Junior produced around 1730, at the peak of his career. Mr. Masahiro Arita, a transverse flute player who owns one of the Stanesby Junior instruments, has supervised the reproduction made by our company."
