Just got an email from Matthew Olwell this morning that my keyless blackwood Pratten is almost ready!
Right on time too, just a little over a year from the order date.
Just a little bit more....

Enjoy! I bought mine 20 years ago and I'm still in awe of how awesome it is.

I'm predicting that you'll love it.

Congrats! I got mine a year ago March. It's a fantastic flute and I consider myself lucky to have it! Hope you love yours as much (I'm sure you will)!

Took me 20 years to order one so the 14 month wait went by in a flash :)

I'm curious :P How much did you pay it? It's definitely too early for me thinking to buy one, but dreaming is free :wink:

It's never too early to think about buying one--especially if you might want a keyed one in six or so years. I got on the list in 2008 thinking I'd want a Rudall but ended up getting a gorgeous six-keyed Nicholson in 2014. Another six years later and I still love it.

Marish - there was a keyless Olwell with case, but without tuning slide, for sale on Reverb recently. Went for around $1000 (10275 Swedish crowns)

I also took about 20 years to finally get on the list. Placed my orders for a keyless and keyed back in October 2019 :)

Yes Steve, my mistake. I've corrected it now. First time I've seen an Olwell flute on the reverb site. In 2009 I bought my keyless Olwell (Pratten model) with a silver lined head joint, from a musician/teacher in Cork and paid £1300, around $1500. It was only a few months old then.
