Who are the best makers for Delrin (or similar) keyed flutes? I'm considering a Baubet, since I've heard good things, and his prices are very reasonable, but I was just wondering if there are any other makers out there that make a great keyed Delrin flute. I see posts for wooden flutes all the time, and they always say something like "hairline crack recently repaired by maker". I want no part in that kind of anxiety, but I do want to see if I can find a great keyed flute (maybe four keys).

I believe John Gallagher (Elkins, WV) can do keyed delrins, too, but charges the same as his ABW ones.

I would seriously look at the keyed Delrin flutes by David Copely

One of Dave's delrin keyed flutes especially attracts me. It has a delrin tuning slide and no rings.
It is several thousand dollars less than Dave's other keyed delrin flutes, it has six keys. I have a
keyless Copley and can testify that Dave's delrin slide works well.

Jim - I just checked the Copley web site. The difference in tuning slides is a couple of hundred dollars.

Thanks for correcting my mistake. Also, I believe if you skip the silver rings you save another hundred.
I think these flutes look elegant without the rings.

Also, the four-key flute, if there is also a reduction for omitting a metal tuning slide and rings, looks like a very good deal.
