Hello All,

I'm selling my Terry McGee Keyless pratten flute in 'D'. It's a lovely instrument, but it doesn't get as much love these days as my keyed Murray. Thus, I'm selling to fund other instruments. :D

It's the short-foot version (standard for McGee keyless) and I'm asking $850 for it.

There's currently no case. I've made due with a soft towel.

No damage, cracks, or blemishes to speak of, though the harsh Wisconsin winters caused a wee bit of contraction and a couple of the rings are loose. Shouldn't be a problem, McGee flutes are famously resistant to environmentally induced damage. Just be careful you don't lose them in dry conditions.

I'll be at the St. Louis TionĂ³l this weekend and I'll bring it with me if anyone wants to try it there.

Sound samples and pictures to follow.

Previous owner thought that perhaps there was a blemish here from a previous repair; I don't think so (if anything a small nick), but you be the judge

And without further ado.... A quick video attempting to showcase the tonal quality of the instrument. Please forgive the super sloppy playing...

Friendly bump! This is still available and price is negotiable. I'll be at Galway Arms in Chicago tomorrow night if anyone local to the Chicago area would like to give it a blow.
