Irish Flute: Anonymous Flute

This is a 8 keyed anonymous flute in D.

I bought it on ebay in October, 2010. It cost 310 pounds.

Because it had no case, I made one by myself. I bought a box, which is made of paulownia wood, and urethane foam. I cut urethane foam and laid it in the box. The case is very light because it is made of paulownia wood.

The A and B notes were too sharp. I put some cork in the tone holes to flatten both notes. Now, they are in tune.

There were cracks on the headjoint. I fill them by myself, because it costs about 20,000 yen to have it repaired in Tokyo.

Though it's a very quiet flute, I've enjoyed playing and repairing it.

P.S. I sold this flute in 2011.
