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.
