SPLENDID Vintage Wooden Flute
Arsene Zoe Lecompte
This is a very fine circa 1880 Grenadilla African Black wood Flute made in France, custom ordered by a customer with solid silver keys & mechanisms, a more square cut embouchure hole, and a B foot joint. It is all original in restored ready to play condition.

It produces a very sweet yet full rich tone low to high. It sounds beautiful and will sound even better after the new musician plays consistently for a week or two to break in the leather pads.
