Condition: Restored antique ~1860 by Patrick Olwell. Very fine hairline crack on backside of headjoint has been sealed and doesn't show in photographs. Foot joint has damage to block which would hold a now missing low C key. Not attached currently but will come included is the low C# key and wood turned screw adjuster for the cork. Leaving the C# key off allows for a stronger speaking bottom D which most of us players of traditional Irish music enjoy. Current cork is a turned Delrin plug.
Wow! What a sweet playing flute! Smaller holes but great energy, power, dynamic range and intonation. A great player at modern pitch with intonation that rivals some of the best modern flutes. Lovely Cocus rarely seen these days in modern flutes. This is a true player's antique flute and is well suited for trad music.
