I'm looking for a polymer flute and saw this one:

https://www.thompsonflutes.com/about

From the website:
The 'Two piece' model. A tunable two piece design only available in Delrin incorporating a lengthened headjoint & one piece (tapered bore) body.

Any opinions or experiences on this model in particular. I read other posts where people were enthusiastic in general about his flutes, but nothing on this new two piece model.

Thanks!
Jordden

I bought this beginner delrin flute a few months back, I'm fairly new to keyless, but I've been playing whistles for a few months now, & had a Tony Dixon ABS one piece before I bought this one. The hole spacings on the Damian Tompson flute are closer together, so easier to finger, but still require the 'pipers grip'.

Overall, very satisfied with the quality & sound of mine. :thumbsup:

I am also interested in his “student” model made in delrin and would appreciate any comments from forum members who have had the opportunity to play one.

Thanks

I've tried at least a few of his delrin flutes which I think would have been 3/4piece models . I thought they were very good. As far as I know the budget model is just a simplified 2 piece design that sounds the same as the more expensive models.

I have one of his student models and they are excellent, look terrific, have a wonderful tone and are very easy to maintain. Very beginner friendly but as you progress they don't become redundant or limiting either! fair play Damian :) - Martin

Received my Damian Thompson two-piece delrin flute. Damian was a pleasure to do business with & everything went smooth. I'm very pleased with the flute so far. It feels solid and well-made. No rough edges, excellent finish etc. It is the most basic of flutes: no endcap, no rings & two pieces joined by one tenon with cork. When I heard a very good player give it a go it sounded quite nice too. Now I just have to learn how to play it :)

There are some photo's of this model on Damian's site: https://www.thompsonflutes.com/about

The first few months are the hardest. Courage! Patience!
