For photos, recordings of Grey Larsen playing this flute, lots of information, and to purchase this flute, please go to https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/cas ... 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 F keys.)

This flute 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 we 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 should be marked as a commercial post.

My mistake - I see now there is a Used Instrument forum. I will now endeavor to move my post over there. Thank you for letting me know.

To be clear:

I am not a moderator, I’m just pointing out that this is a commercial post, and on the flute forum the post should be noted as such with “CP:” in front of the title, or similar. The post is allowed on the flute forum, as well as the used instrument forum and doesn’t need to be deleted or moved.
