    I bought this a few months ago from Ben here on C&F. Wanted to try a Forbes instrument as a potential replacement for my current Delrin "travel/inclement weather" flute.

    This is nicely made, good intonation, light in weight (doesn't have the extended foot with tuning holes that many other flutes have), great sound. However, It just doesn't fit my hands—probably because I'm used to slightly different fingerhole spacing and haven't been able to adapt. Operator problem, not the flute.

    Anyhow, it's what Rob Forbes describes as Pratten-style, with in-line fingering (not off-set holes), one-piece combination cap/cork (not the adjustable version). No case.

    $295 plus $20 shipping within ConUS. ($425 new from Mr. Forbes.) Nice flute, good price.

    Thanks for looking.

    Best wishes.

    Steve
