Irish Flute: Vincenzo Di Mauro

I ordered a keyless flute in D from Vincenzo Di Mauro (VDM) in August, 2015. I received it in May, 2016. So, the waiting time was about 9 months.

It is made of Delrin and has a fully lined headjoint. It came here without a case.

I like its tone, especially high notes. And it's easy for me to hold though I have small hands.

I guess that G and A in the second octave are a little sharp for me.

I sold this flute in 2016.

Irish Flute: Shannon (Walt Sweet)

I ordered a Shannon flute through the Irish Flute Store in June, 2015. It took about three weeks to receive it in Osaka, Japan. It's a keyless D flute made of Polymer.

I think it's worth more than the price. It's easy to play.

I guess the first finger hole is a little bigger and the sixth one is a little smaller than other flutes.

Irish Flute : Cochran (Jon Cornia)

I bought a used keyless D flute made by Jon Cornia from him, in December 2014. It is made from Delrin modeled after a large holed Rudall. It has attractive sterling silver rings! Its headjont is half-lined.

Because its C and C# were too flat for me, I asked Jon to adjust that. He said that it's a common problem with the original design of 8-key conical flutes. He was kind enough to do some fine adjustments for me immediately.

P.S.

I sold this flute to my friend. He is a good whistle player.

Irish Flute: Rob Forbes

I ordered a keyless flute in D from Rob Forbes in August, 2014. I received it in January, 2015. So, the waiting time was about 5 months.

It is made of Delrin. It is tunable, but its headjoint isn't lined. I bought a soft vinyl pouch from him, too.

I think it's a loud flute!

Irish Flute : Hammy Hamilton

I bought a used keyless D flute made by Hammy Hamilton, in December 2014.

Its headjont is half-lined and its toneholes are big, bigger than my Olwell flute's.

I enjoy playing this great flute though I'm not a powerful player.

P.S. I sold this flute in 2015.

Irish Flute : Tony Dixon

I got a used keyless D flute made by Tony Dixon, in December 2014. It's made of wood! I guess he doesn't make wooden flutes anymore...

It's light because it doesn't have a tuning slide. It's easy to hold, but it doesn't play at A=440...

I gave this flute to a whistle player who lived in Japan.

Irish Flute: Steffen Gabriel

I ordered a keyless flute in D from Steffen Gabriel in Feburary, 2013. I received it in July, 2013. So, the waiting time was about 5 months.

It cost 775 euros including the shipping cost.

It is made of Grenadilla. It has a fully lined headjoint.

Because it came here without a case, I bought a pistol case for it recently. It cost 2100 yen.

Irish Flute: William Pond

I bought a 1-key antique flute in D from The Irish Flute Store in April, 2013. It was made by William Pond more than 100 years ago. It cost 538 dollars including the shipping cost.

It is a quiet flute. It isn't easy for me to play, but I enjoy playing it very much!

Irish Flute: Francois Baubet

I bought a keyless flute in D from Francois Baubet in Feburary, 2013. It is made of Delrin. It cost 355 euros including the shipping cost.

I prefer my Baubet flute to my Somers flute, which is made of Delrin, too. Although my Baubet is quieter than my Somers, my Baubet is easier for me to play.

Both flutes are always in our living room. So, I can pick them up and play them anytime I want to.

PS

I sold this flute in Japan in February, 2014.

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.
