Irish Flute: Hawkes & Son
This is a 8 keyed flute in Eb made by Hawkes & Son. I bought it on ebay in September, 2010. It cost 900 dollars.
Because it had no case, I made one by myself. I bought a wood box and urethane foam. I cut urethane foam and laid it in the box. I enjoyed making the case.
I had it overhauled because it was an antique flute. Although the overhaul cost 50,000 yen, I'm pleased with the result.
It's a nice and loud flute. Interestingly, it plays much better with the Olwell headjoint. I usually play it with the Olwell headjoint.
I sold this flute to my friend in December, 2011 because I had bought a keyless Eb flute from Dave Copley.
