Hammy Hamilton Practice Flute
The much loved flute-maker, Hammy Hamilton, first designed this practice flute over 20 years ago to help complete beginners get to grip with the simple system Irish flute before moving onto the wooden versions. It has been a hit with students of the Irish flute ever since.
Key Features of the Hammy Hamilton Practice Flute
- Aluminium Tubing
- Nylon Mouthpiece
- Specially Designed Embouchure
- Standard Finger Hole Size and Spacing
- Lovely Traditional Tone
- Good Internal Tuning
The embouchure has been designed to respond well to the undeveloped embouchure of the beginner, while at the same time producing a better tone and volume for those who make progress in this direction.
These flutes have finger hole sizes and spacing which very closely approach those of the wooden flute so that if and when the player begins to play the 'real' flute there will no need for a period of re-adjustment.
These flutes act as an ideal introduction to the blowing technique of the transverse flute in a general sense, no matter whether the child intends to play classical or traditional music at a later stage.

You can comfortably & seriously begin learning on the practice flute." Ben
