Irish Flute: Watson

I ordered a keyless flute in Eb from Glenn Watson in January, 2012. I received it in August, 2012. So, the waiting time was about six months.

It cost 830 euros including a hard case and the shipping cost.

It's easier for me to play than my Copley Eb flute. Though I think it's quieter than my Copley, I like it very much!

It is made of Mopane. I like its color, too. And it has a partially lined head-joint.
