FS: Sam Murray keyless flute in blackwood.

Post by Gaaslaj »

Selling my Sam Murray flute in D. I’ve had this for a number of years, great flute! I bought it from Mr. Gumby, a member here from Ireland, who bought it from Sam in 2004. Excellent condition plays great. I like to change flutes ever so often just for fun. Asking $875, shipping $15 in a flat rate box USPS. Thanks, John.

Photos here. Hard to take good photos of a flute.

These may help. This was how it looked before it left here:

Lovely flute, I am not completely sure about the 2004, it may have been as late as 2006, I remember a concert I had it for (but decided to play the whistle instead). Anyway, I got it new from Sam, collected it from his workshop and never regretted it. The flute was meant for playing out but I just didn't like my own fluteplaying well enough.

Speaking of your photos, what's up with the tenons? Have they been overwrapped with something? I don't see any shoulder.

I have the same Sam Murray model I bought last year. It's simply divine. I could never part with it. :-)

By the way, the CITES restrictions on Blackwood for instruments have been repealed and after mid November you can send anywhere in the world. Good news a long time coming for flutists.

There are tenon shoulders, just not a very good photo. I shows them better in the B/W photos, J.

Is the head lined, unlined, partially lined?

Thanks and best wishes.
