The Rudall rose model KEYLESS FLUTES IN D WITH TUNING SLIDE

With soft case
With hard case £680:00
An Instrument developed from a Rudall & Rose 8 keyed flute dated 1837
This simple system keyless flute breaks down into three pieces with cork lapped joints. It has a silver plated tuning slide and mounts and is surprisingly powerful for a flute with small tone holes, which are easily reached especially as the left and right hand joints can be rotated in relation to each other. Advantage has been taken of the ease with which this instrument can be played by people with small hands and limited reach, by making it light and really well balanced. The embouchure of this flute facilitates good tone development with minimal air consumptiom.

Phil Bleazery KEYED FLUTES

THE KEYED FLUTES
WITH TUNING SLIDE AND ONE TO SIX KEYS

ONE KEY:- £970.00
TWO KEYS:- £1130.00
THREE KEYS:- £1,280.00
FOUR KEYS:- £1,440.00
FIVE KEYS:- £1,590.00
SIX KEYS:- £1,750.00

The basis of these flutes is the Rudall Rose model which has proved extremely popular with players over the years and so was the obvious choice. They are supplied with, from one to six keys in any combination. The keys are block mounted as were the originals.
The keys are each individually hand made from brass for superior strength and silver plated with pure silver which gives better tarnish resistance than sterling silver. The touch plates are kept, where possible, on the centre line of the key to avoid the twisting moment of the traditional offset ones, alignment of the key with the players fingers being made by cutting the blocks in the right place to start with. Each block is lined with a solid brass channel to promote freer movement, wear resistance and, most importantly, to make the block much stronger than the old unlined ones which are liable to distort and cause jamming or excessive movement of the keys. Should the unthinkable occur and a key be damaged by, for instance, dropping the instrument, the fabricated brass key can be easily straightened with no risk of breakage and the block with its brass liner can be rebuilt to its original condition.
The springs are screwed in place making replacement straightforward. Both springs and screws are stainless steel. Each spring bears on a Teflon pad sunken into the body of the instrument to reduce wear and friction.
Pads are made from "pnumatic lamb", which is not an inflatable farm animal but is the skin used on organ pallets. This material is readily available to instrument makers, who will all be familiar with the technique of bedding them into the cups with shellac.

Key of B flat
Price £ 210:00

Key of G
Price £ 240.00

Key of D
Price £ 440.00

Following many stories of people whose low whistles are difficult to play for reasons of very high air consumption, over large finger holes too far apart, or an inability to play above the fourth note in the second register, I was determined to make my low whistles free of these problems and ensure that they had the same quality of tone and intonation as the other whistles that I make. Many of you will know that this has taken several years but at last I am satisfied with the results and offer an instrument worthy of the title.

These ow whistles use a good range of pressure increasing steadily through the range without a huge increase in air consumption which allows you to employ as much expression as you want. Flexibility throughout the range of 2 octaves and a tuning slide with ample adjustment allows you to keep up with the wildest of sessions. The dense timbers used to make these instruments mean that you have to warm them up well but once warm they stay that way. Each of my low whistles is played in by me during voicing to eliminate any problems from moisture distorting the block, the special shape of which allows it to 'work' in the windway with no undue effect on performance.
