Condition: Excellent. Single owner instrument who meticulously stored at 45-50% humidity. Had two very small places on the head joint where the woodgrain had separated slightly (undetectable unless under studio light). These were filled with matching Samoan blackwood dust and cyanoacrylate as a precautionary measure only as the head joint sealed perfectly prior to treatment.
A true players instrument made by one of the finest wooden flutists of modern day. Modeled after Chris' own Rudall Rose #742 (circa 1826), this flute features hand engraved sterling silver bands and crown screw-cap.
Intonation, dynamic range, power, tonal complexity - all top marks. Power is especially impressive for having medium small finger holes.
7-key configuration with right hand Bb touch and C natural thumb hole.
Supplied with Cavallero roll case, accessories and storage canister.
Chris currently has a 18 month wait list on new commissions.
If you haven't heard Chris play, you simply must!
