Emil Rittershausen Grenadilla Wooden Flute - Ready for a player

E. Rittershausen Grenadilla Wooden Flute

This is a lovely Rittershausen Pre 1945 grenadilla wooden flute. It plays beautifully with a woody full tone with ample volume and projection.

The lined head joint enables faster articulation.

This flute was completely overhauled from top to bottom. Fully disassembled, oiled, all new pads and corks, keys polished, fine tuned, etc.

It was in fantastic shape when we received it.

We have had many Rittershausen flutes in our hands over the years. The one simply out plays the rest.
