Chris Wilkes 8-Key Pratten

Regular price $5,999.99 Sale

Preowned.  Crack in barrel section repaired by Patrick Olwell.  According to Chris, this flute is about 20-22 years old.

As we are CITES compliant, this flute is available to ship internationally!

Wow, what a flute!  Those familiar with these instruments know that they don't come up for sale often and that Chris currently has a 10 year wait list for his flutes.

This Pratten style flute plays true to form with strong, resonant tone, perfect intonation and a rock solid bottom D.  This is a flute for the player looking for that big uncompromising Pratten sound!

Also features Chris' signature Rose engine turned end cap!

Bottom C key is a bit fiddly to seal.  We suggest adding a bit of heavy tool oil to the plug to assist in sealing if you plan on using the bottom C key.  It would be also worth having a flute/woodwind repair shop look into dialing that key in further.
