Brand new silver and gold dc pro series ii flute with split E key and engraved lip plate deluxe model.
Silverplated and 24k gold plated open hole flute with low b foot.
Has drawn and rolled tone holes for a better pad seal.
Comes with case and cleaning rod. Has deep, dark, rich tone. Good quality flute. Has high quality yellow double skin pads only used on the most expensive hand made flutes for long lasting durability and maximum sound quality.
Silverplated instruments such as this one produce a rich mellow tone.
This is because the silverplate bonds to the brass, expanding and contracting at the same ratio and produces a richer and more full sound.
I have been playing the flute professionally for 35 years.
My most memorable gig was for former
President Clinton and
Senator john Kerry.
It was a fund raiser for senator Kennedy in Boston. I was playing with the john payne band.
When i played this flute...
I was very impressed!
I have been repairing flutes for almost 23 years. When i played this flute, i could not put it down. I like it better than any flute that i have ever played in this price range, including the major brands that cost 3 times as much. It has a huge sound, a more even timbre, the altissimo and subtones are very easy to sound, and yet the tone is warm and full bodied.
Has deep, dark, rich tone.
This instrument was manufactured in 2004.
Comes with 5 year factory warranty.
These flutes are stronger yet lighter, Crafted using modern methods Yet maintain a traditional appearance, And the key action feels Comparable to a hand built model Yet it remains competitively priced.
I am a factory-authorized dealer and repairman.
All instruments are shop-tested and adjusted to play perfectly before shipment.

I learned flute making while working for William S. Haynes flute company in Boston.
They make flutes that start at $8,500.00
My job was to solder the tone holes on these flutes...
Which was a very critical job and had to be perfect to assure perfect intonation.
I was very fortunate to have first hand experience in flute making while working there.
So I decided to make my own flutes, saxophones, clarinets, trumpets, french horns and trombones.
DC PRO IS MY OWN BRAND THAT I DESIGNED MYSELF AND HAD MADE FOR ME,
WITH MY SPECS.. I LEARNED FLUTE MAKING WHILE WORKING FOR WILLIAM S. HAYNES FLUTE COMPANY IN BOSTON.
THEY MAKE FLUTES THAT START AT $8,500.00
MY JOB WAS TO SOLDER THE TONE HOLES ON THESE FLUTES...
WHICH WAS A VERY CRITICAL JOB AND HAD TO BE PERFECT TO ASSURE PERFECT INTONATION.
I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE IN FLUTE MAKING WHILE WORKING THERE.
SO I DECIDED TO MAKE MY OWN OPEN HOLE FLUTE SINCE THERE WAS SUCH A NEED FOR A LOW COST OPEN HOLE FLUTE ON THE MARKET.
