I just recieved this today which is my first proper keyless D flute. I am very impressed with it, a good solid low D and effortless to play all notes. I dont have the biggest hands in the world and found the tone holes to be very easy to cover without having to think about it.
I did quite a bit of research before buying this flute but as I already have a couple of his G flutes and was impressed with them too, I am not disappointed.
The flute comes with a flute roll, small bottle of Almond Oil and a cleaning rod with a line marker turned into it to show the correct positioning of the tunable cork. There is also a guide on caring for the flute and a finger chart.

This flute is a bargain, it cost £475 New and I know Tony has one more left before he starts making another batch but he also makes excellent quality Bassoons and Oboes. I will be driving the missus crazy over the next few weeks with this lovely lady and have decided to call her after my daughter 'Aoife'. :thumbsup:

Unknown-maker Schwedler-type flute. It is not a reform flute despite the metal head, it does not have 24 holes and lacks several reform-mechanism. Any wood is likely black rosewood (I compared the grain to a rosewood piccolo). There is a not-pictured cup that is made out of the same material and it sinks in water. Metal is nickel-brass everywhere.

Likely manufacture was between World Wars. I inherited it from my grandfather, who came from today's Czechoslovakia. He was a doctor. The only thing I know about his playing habbit was that he was first taught to play the thing without the foot.

In case

Head, with Bakelite (or at least plastic) lip-plate

Assembled

Only straightforward thing hinting maker: the underside of the foot's C# key

I forgot to post a picture of this new addition to my collection. It has five keys and although made as high pitch for Flute Bands I can play along easily to trad tunes with the head pulled out and the cork moved a little. I think these flutes are excellent quality for the money, made in Kilkeel, Co.Down and at less than £500 for a five key flute they are great value for money.

Here's a clip too.

From top to bottom:

Boehm "C" flute
Irish D flute
Bamboo G flute.
PVC G flute I made myself (I have some others also)
Bb marching fife.
Yamaha C fife.

The Boehm flute just arrived today, and I have to figure out how to play it.

Not much of a collection, but its what I have.

I've been playing for around 6-7 months now, so I'm still quite the newbie! Here's my collection:

Image

Left to right:
Red Music Shop Bawu, F
Gemeinhardt M2 Western Concert Flute, C
Erik the Flutemaker Egyptian Flute, D/D# (can't really tell)
Kolbe Bamboo Flute, G Major
Red Music Shop Hulusi, Eb
Clarke tin whistle, D
Pan flute, key n/a
Nose flute, probably no key

I'm aware that the bawu and the hulusi aren't technically flute and that there's a separate tin whistle collection forum, but I thought it'd be nice to just lump all my woodwinds into 1 pic! Except my slide whistle; it's cheap and I hate it.

Hi Burcey, please re-try your image link. The Imgur link above doesn't work. Cheers. - Mod

Added: Thanks, fixed it.
