Hi folks,

Quick question: have you seen anything similar before? Looks like the tenon is... like a tuning slide?

Anyone can shed some light?

Try asking flutemaker Jon C. (Jon Cornia of Cochran flutes) on this forum. Those look like the decorative rings he uses. Isn't the flute marked, or did you just come across a picture?

Leboncoin.fr is some kind of french craigslist...

I found the original posting:
https://www.leboncoin.fr/instruments_de ... tm?ca=21_s

The flute is from Glen Lebot. So he's the guy who should be contacted:
http://glenlebot-instruments.com/

Nice and slightly weird looking... I have no idea if his flutes are good.

Well-spotted. I had a look at his website, and it appears that he makes one model with a metal sleeve body that receives a simpler (1 piece) headjoint than as shown in the OP's photo. He also makes the more conventional 2-piece headjoint/tuning slide, which joins to a corked tenon on the upper joint. The OP photo seems to mix the 2.

Sorry, but the photos are large, so scrolling happens here.

One-piece (monoblock?) head:

Interesting/unusual Bb key as well.

Not that unusual. Right-hand operation, possibly as an accomodation to someone for comfort. He could probably whip up the more obvious key as well. His keyless flutes without the full tuning slide seem reasonably priced. Those patterned rings are still very much like Jon C.s. I wonder if they share the sourcing for them.

Looks like a broken tenon repair to me, not to hard to replace.

It looks like one, but I think it may be the inner sleeve of a barrel-less slide design (monoblock head) intended by this French maker. The other pics show what may be an engraved (choice of) brass or silver-colored receiver that is part of the head. How's your French? I used Google Translate.

Thanks all! I was just curious, as it does look like an in-between.
