Hi to all,
lehart 7 keyed E flute is back for sale or trade, I did find what I thought was a long term solution to my hand issue, but sadly its not, previous post is below
recently and reluctantly sold my lovelly Hammy flute due to hand issues ( Ganglion ), I bought Calum Stewarts Lehart 7 keyed Rudall style blackwood flute in the key of ( E ) great player with a great punchy sound, my idea was that a shorter flute in E would be less stress on my fingers, the finger with the ganglion on the upper joint aches after prolonged playing and occasionally locks, the ache tends to linger for some time after, so its not the finger stretch causing the problems, my DR advice is not to have surgery, as there can be complications that could make the situation worse, it has no affect on my whistle playing, so thats one good thing.
The flute is in great shape, all keys seal well, the link below has the images from Calum's post, viewtopic.php?f=2&t=86783&p=1060705&hilit=lehart#p1060705
I can send a video link if anyone would like to hear it played,
I paid £1000, looking for around £800 ish, may consider some sort of trade.
