Flute(Hawkes & Son)

The Green Mountain, Sheehan's (reels) - Eb Flute Solo

I learned the first reel from Music For The Sets - the yellow book compiled by David J Taylor. I guess the second reel is a popular tune. I like both tunes.

I played my 8-keyed Eb flute made by Hawkes & Son. I used the original headjoint.

An Phis Fluich (O'Farrell's Welcome To Limerick) (slip Jig) - Eb Flute Solo

This tune is a famous slip jig. I learned it from Mr. Moriyasu and Traditional Irish Tin Whistle Tutor by Geraldine Cotter. It has 5 parts.

I played my 8 keyed flute in Eb made by Hawkes & Son. I used the original headjoint this time. It is a little difficult for me to play because it has a smaller embouchure hole.

The Concert Reel, Salute to Baltimore (reels) - Eb Flute Solo

I learned these reels from Draíocht by Michael Rooney and June McCormack.

I took the first picture and my wife took the second picture when we went to Baltimore in 2002.

I played my 8 keyed flute in Eb made by Hawkes & Son with the Olwell headjoint.

The Rathcroghan, Trim the Velvet (reels) - Eb Flute Solo

I learned this set from The Flute Players Of Roscommon Volume 1 produced by John Wynne. It's one of my favourite CDs. More than ten flute players play good Irish music in it.

Sonny's Return, Fr. Grady's Visit To Bocca (reels) - Eb Flute Solo

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.

PS

I sold this flute to my friend in December, 2011 because I had bought a keyless Eb flute from Dave Copley.
