Bryan Byrne keyless flute made from African Blackwood, with Sterling rings, slide and fully sterling lined headjoint. Absolutely killer R&R style flute that sounds and plays fantastic. Yes, you need to have a decent embouchure to get the best out of a Byrne, but the effort is well worth it - this is one of the best flutes I’ve ever played, period. Also, the workmanship on Bryan’s flutes is second to none.

The flute is in very good condition with the exception of two cracks in the barrel section. In light of the cracks, I have priced the flute accordingly. You could, of course, have the cracks repaired professionally, which wouldn’t cost a lot - I’d expect $50-$100, or you could have Bryan make you a new barrel, which he told me a while back would cost $500.....Personally, I think a relatively inexpensive repair of the existing barrel by a reputable maker (I recommend Dave Copley) makes the most sense, but that’s me. You could also do the repair yourself, either with super glue or by binding with thread, as they do on bamboo flutes. Plenty of videos on YouTube to show you how.

Last time I spoke with Bryan was several years ago and as I recall he was charging $2000 for new keyless flutes at that time.

Price for my Byrne is $1200 shipped and insured (ONLY TO USA DESTINATIONS) which includes a padded cavallero roll-up style carry bag. Photos available on request for serious parties.

If the cracked barrel is the only thing holding you back from buying this flute, it can be shipped with the barrel repaired for $100 more. Feel free to contact me for details.
