Hi everyone,
A recent restoration; the head joint was not salvagable, due to someone trying to improve the embouchure hole... I decided to make the new head unlined, and make the chimney a little deeper, the original had a thinned head, with a very low chimney. The results were a nice tone! My embouchure cut is copied after Wylde’s round oval. Flute is very similar to my Fentum flutes. Plays well in 440hz, original head was setup for a little higher pitch.
The holes look like it was someones favorite flute!
Anyway looking for a good home for her... With over 30 flutes, it is hard to play them all...

How much are you asking for it? if you have no inconvenience in saying it in public for sure. Thanks
