Tim Adams Flutes

Post by Ben Shaffer »

Curious if anyone on the Board owns a Tim Adams Flute, and if so what do you think?
Tim's prices look very reasonable . He has 2 videos of himself playing one of his Mopane Flutes and one of him playing a Blackwood Model
I think there have been a number of Posts regarding Tim and his Flutes, but I don't think anyone owns one.
But judging by his Videos they sound quite nice

I only saw one mention of someone personally owning & playing one, and C&F member Steampacket lives near him. I assume you read the thread (including comments from Tim Adams, who is also a C&F member):

I have one of his flutes (earlier generation). I think it is quite good, intonation good, easy to fill, light, came with two plugs one of F natural and the other for Bb. When there was an issue with one of the brass rings, he took flute back and fixed it.

No experience with current model.
