Keys / Ribs / Posts
Gold plated over solid silver (for longevity of stability and strength). Gold is a very soft metal, and solid gold keywork and mechanisms will "move and shift". Best a durable flute than more gold or softer metal where strength is needed.

Head Joint

.012 wall.

Condition
This flute is unused and was a custom order. The flutist did not finalize payment, so you will get a very good deal.

This flute was never used as a demo, and has not been in a flute store for show or "open box". It has been the hands of the craftsperson, and of course my own to ensure it plays correctly.


True Handmade Flute
This is a one of a kind true handmade flute. It does feature soldered tone holes, and was made in Japan by a mastercraftsperson.

Feel
This is a very comfortable flute that produces a glorious tone. It is not heavy or bulky, yet has a nice mid wall construction. The C foot joint enables ease of high notes, and soldered tone holes ensure scale accuracy, and add more depth to overall tone. The flute has plenty of bass thus, C foot joint is very appropriate.
