Sounding Length:

Total Length:

Notes:This flute has had a rough life. I don’t think the head joint can be restored but it has quite an amazing series of repairs to the back of the head. The finger holes have quite a bit of wear, indicating that someone really liked and played this flute. The attempted repairs also show that someone really wanted to keep it working. There is also a small pinned repair on the RH joint.
