Small Hand Paddy O'Casey Blackwood D Flute

A while ago I acquired the bottom two pieces of a small-handed Casey Burns flute. Recently a respected maker agreed to make a new head-joint -- with an end-crown -- to fit the pieces and to make it a good flute. The maker’s instruments are played by outstanding players of traditional Irish music. Th...

Re: Hygrometer recommendations

Not to engage in hygrometer wars, but the cheap ones (ThermoPro TP49 Digital Hygrometer $7) got higher ratings than the Cigar Oasis Caliber IV Digital Hygrometer ($30). The Caliber IV Digital Hygrometer and Thermometer ($40) did receive higher ratings but only three people rated it so the sampling i...

Re: Second octave d is reluctant to speak

That is how I was taught to play it -- venting the top hole -- and how I do play it.
I assume that it is a keyless flute and that a leak somewhere is not an issue.

Re: new flute or old

If Matt Molloy, who has been playing for about 65 years, doesn't need 8 keys, neither do I. I have been playing flutes with six keys for about fifty years and I haven't ever missed having eight keys.

You just don't need eight keys -- or any keys, if it comes to that -- to make good music.

Re: Hamilton Eb 6 key flute on E-bay

Looks a little dry, doesn't it. Needs some oiling. Inside as well, probably.
