Split e and engraved lip plate, deluxe model.
24k gold plated keys, lip plate and crown, with offset g key.

Silver plated instruments such as this one produce a rich mellow tone.
This is because the silver plate 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 at a fund raiser for senator Kennedy in Boston with the john Payne band of Brookline, mass. 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 sub tones are very easy to sound, and yet the tone is warm and full bodied.
Has deep, dark, rich tone.
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.
