Sweetheart Single Key Irish flute in Rosewood with Faux Ivory Rings and a single brass Eb key. Good example of Ralph's Design and Work. It does have a crack in the bottom tennon of the left hand piece (never got around to mending it), doesn't affect playability. I'm asking $250 for this flute including priority mail within contiguous US.

Cooperman Concert Fife in Blackwood with Nickel-Silver rings. I searched long and hard for a good fife to use playing Irish Tunes. This fife has a strong and colorful bottom octave and clear voice with good intonation. I'm asking $200 for this fife including Priority Mail within the contiguous US.

If you would like both, I would be happy to send them to you for $400.

Please respond via PM or Email.

Thanks for your consideration

What the... is a 'contemporary antique' ?

Apart from being a contradiction in terms.

Presumably you would accept expired currency in payment? :wink:

I take it to mean either a modern reproduction of antique instruments/designs
OR
An older modern instrument, such as a 2001 Hammy Hamilton flute vs. a 2019-made model. Modern, but not as fresh as new.

What can I say, the title amused me! :D

The flute and fife are of relatively recent manufacture (< 25-years), but no longer produced.

In penance for the confusion, I'll knock $50 off the price of each! :thumbsup:

Sorry for being uninformed but what key does the fife play in?
EZ

Hey EZman,

The fife plays in Bb (typical of most fifes). :party:
