This is a professional level flute designed for orchestral players who want a wooden, more natural tone, great for students who want a serious flute without a seriously high price, as some flutes from certain makers go well over £4000 and up from that. This is a rich, full bodied tone instrument which will last a life time and be a rather unique part of your playing life.
