I am selling a splendid keyless Solen Lesouef mopane flute. She is one of a number of great young French flute-makers. The flute is in perfect condition. I have enjoyed this flute very much for the time that I have had it but I must sell it to help fund the purchase of a house in Tucson. It plays perfectly in tune with good volume and a lovely sound. The flute has been played and kept carefully humidified. I will sent it in the handmade hard wooden case that a Solen Leseouf flute comes in.

You can hear a Solen Leseouf mopane flute being played, and hear what Blayne Chastain, a great player, has to say about Solen’s work:

“Really, really responsive, great, earthy tone. Really easy to hold yet strong sound. It gives so much in terms of the tone. Great dynamic range, soft or hard. Awesome flute that would suit anyone. Very light, very beautiful, great sounding.
“The flute held up to crushing the notes yet supported delicate phrasing.”


Mopane is fairly oily, and seasons very well, with few splits or shakes. The color varies from an orange-brown to a dark red-brown, with dark veins. It is similar to African Blackwood or cocus in density and takes a very good polish. It is becoming very popular as a wood for flutes. Mopane produces a rich and direct sound.

Solen has an impressive wait list. The new price is $899 plus the cost of shipping and insurance from Brittany, so over $1,000. I am asking $775. It will come shipped n the original hard wooden case. Postage in the US is included. You can return it for a full refund (less the cost of shipping) if it doesn’t suit you.
