Two flutes of a Belgian player have been stolen. Just sharing this in case someone sees them offered for sale... Thx for sharing !

"Two 6-keyed wooden flutes were stolen from Micheal O’Briain’s home in Moorsel, Tervuren on the evening of 14 October 2019. They are a stained Boxwood flute made by Sam Murray (see photos showing also ivory head/end joints made from old billiard balls - the keys had been further strengthened by Geert Lejeune, who also had slightly shorted the bottom section of the flute) & a Cocus wood standard flute made by Geert Lejeune ( - see photo). The loss of these unique and high quality hand-crafted instruments is devastating and Micheal would greatly appreciate, if any musician learns about someone attempting to sell them, to let him know as soon as possible. He can be contacted by email at or by phone at 00 32 485059864."
