For sale: a used, like-new, Low B-flat Casey Burns flute with 4 keys - $3200 USD

For photos, recordings of Grey Larsen playing this flute, lots of information, and to purchase this flute, please go to ... soft-case/.

This is a pristine, used but like-new low B-flat flute made by Casey Burns in October 2013, measuring 29 inches long (73.66 cm) with the tuning slide fully closed. It is made of African blackwood and sterling silver, with brass tubing within the tuning slide. With its four post-mounted silver keys – for E-flat, F-natural, G-sharp and B-flat – it is a fully chromatic instrument. It plays beautifully, with excellent intonation. (Since the keys are post-mounted, Casey Burns could add more keys later if you wish, such as long C and long F keys.)

This flute has had a single owner in a non-smoking household in Seattle, has always been kept in a climate-controlled environment, has been played very little, and is in tip-top condition. It has been regularly cleaned and oiled. It also has a celtic knot design engraved onto the silver band between the head joint and body of the flute (see photos). The engraving was done by Medford, Oregon bagpipe builder Murray Alan Huggins.

Right before I received this flute, the maker, Casey Burns, oiled it inside and out, re-threaded and lubricated the joints, took apart the tuning slide and buffed it, and then took each of the silver keys off and buffed and polished them before re-installing them. He pronounced it to be like-new.

This flute went quickly and is now sold. However, Grey is leaving it up there - and there are two lovely examples of him playing it too!
