FS: Barna Gabos Pratten flute - $785 SOLD

Post by Julia Delaney »

I bought this flute from a friend in Norway. Barna Gabos is a Hungarian musician, making beautiful flutes at a very reasonable price. His D flute looks very much like an Olwell Pratten design. It plays beautifully, with good internal tuning and a powerful tone. The flute has a good, strong bottom D and reaches into the third octave effortlessly.

The flute is beautifully made. The bore is very smooth and the flute feels very good in the hands. Tigerwood is light and stable, with a lovely grain. To quote Blayne Chastain – The Irish Flute Store - “Barna Gabos is making great flutes.”

From the workshop in Hungary it is priced at €950 for a keyless D flute. Shipping and import duties would be added to result in a price of about €1,200 ($1,250). I am asking for €775 ($785), including a hard case. No charge for shipping in Ireland. Other parts of the world please add €30.

I am happy to offer a trial period with a money back guarantee, less postage.
