Just a quick note that the Copeland 8-key flute is available again.
Thanks!

That flute must bear a bear to play. Look fabulous though.

Hi David:

I've played briefly two older Copland flutes and the wind requirements seemed pretty steep, and I hard a harder time with tone on it.

What happened with the buyer? Did he or she not like the flute?

I'm still tempted though...

She was a classical flautist moving to a wood flute for the first time. Not advised for a Copeland. So she couldn't get the fill, mostly because of the Pratten bore.
I've sold and played other Copeland flutes, with one especially that was different since it matched the Nicholson bore of a Prowse, even had the beveled-level platform on the RH1+2 holes. Great sound. It was a keyless in blackwood. The woman who purchased it from me upgraded from an M&E keyless. Needless to say, we can hear her at the sessions now. :smile:
But this Copeland does have the necessary hard blow needed, mostly because of the Pratten bore. It fills very loudly, but you do need the lip. I prefer the Rudall-style double-conical bores. I can work them better between octaves and tone inflections.

Sigh.
The Copeland 8-key will be available again. The last buyer's hands were too small to comfortably cover the keys and she'd rather have a small-holed flute.
So....
