Irish Flute: Michael Grinter

I usually play the 6 keyed flute in D made by Michael Grinter.

I ordered it in July 2004 and got it in November 2005. So, my waiting time was about sixteen months. I think that the waiting period is much longer now.

It cost 2560 euros including a compact wood case and the shipping cost.

The keys work very smoothly and the surface of the bore is very smooth. I love its mellow, sweet and clear tone. It's an excellent flute!

I received a keyless flute in C from Michael Grinter in November, 2010. I ordered it in November, 2008. So, the waiting time for a keyless flute is 24 months!

I cost 1470 euros including a soft case and the shipping cost.

Though it reruires more air than my Grinter D flute, I think it demands less air than my Ormiston C flute. It is very easy to hold as a C flute. I think it has mellow tone just like my Grinter D flute.

I enjoy playing it very much, though I haven't got accustomed to it yet.
