I have been listening to this beautiful recording by Solas, featuring Seamus Egan playing something he calls the "Bb flute", with a very deep tone and a rich, haunting sound. Does anybody know something more about this instrument? Is it playable for anybody but mr. Egan? Are they commercially available?
All the best,

just about all the good makers will do the Bb flute.....and some even lower!
Rudall&Rose made a beautiful Bb flute in their day, too

I too love a low Bb flute. EGan plays an Olwell low Bb, as does Lawrence Nugent.
I'm about 3-4 months away from one myself. Sure would love to find a Rudall original.
Peter Noy, who makes real nice flute, can make one for you in about 6 months. Many others as well, and I think almost all are based on the Rudall low Bb.
I wrote another message on this board about Matt Malloy's playing of a low Bb on Heathery Breeze. Incredible.
