McGee Gidgee & Silver Rudall Refined 5-Key

$3,19999
Condition: Used - Excellent

Gidgee Wood (Native Australian Acacia) has a similar chocolatey look to Cocus.  Flute features a thumb hole for C natural and a right hand touch for Bb.

Terry's McGee's note on the Rudall Refined model:

"The Rudall Refined takes after a flute in the collection at Edinburgh University, dating around 1845. The original, No 5047, had small holes, probably to satisfy those who prized uniformity of tone over all other factors. It is the same model Rudall played and favoured by current classical musicians such as Chris Norman and Brian Berryman.

Like most of the small-holed flutes from the period, however, tuning was an issue. I have reworked the design to correct the tuning and release the full potential of the bore while retaining the Rudall & Rose sweetness and authority. It now has medium sized holes making it a very easy and rewarding instrument to play.

Being an instrument which you can pick up and play well without warm up, this instrument would suit the player who doesn't get to practice as often as they would like!"
