Irish Flute: Shannon (Walt Sweet)

I ordered a Shannon flute through the Irish Flute Store in June, 2015. It took about three weeks to receive it in Osaka, Japan. It's a keyless D flute made of Polymer.

I think it's worth more than the price. It's easy to play.

I guess the first finger hole is a little bigger and the sixth one is a little smaller than other flutes.
