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.

Price: 510.00

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.
