Embouchure size

Restorer: Kelly Roudabush

Notes: marked “D 3511” Kohlert was a huge company. I think this particular model was one of the main competitor to the many Meyer design flutes. This is a very nicely playing flute with a good even sound. Tuning seems quite good and it plays easily throughout the range.
