Praise for Arie de Keyzer's Keyed Flute
'The wood grain is as smooth as the tone of the flute, and it sounds really great in the higher octave!' - Justin. F
African Blackwood is the tonewood of choice for top Irish flute players and flute makers. This dense hardwood offers a full bodied resonance and produces a strong, powerful tone.
Caring for Your Irish Wooden Flute:
- Always warm up before playing.
- Dry your wooden flute thoroughly after playing to prevent trapped moisture distorting and warping the wood.
- Always take the flute apart after playing and when storing, this takes pressure off the tenons.
- If in a particularly dry climate, lightly oil the bore of the flute, but no more than once a month as over-oiling can cause cracks.
- Use cork grease on the cork lapping to allow for ease of movement.
- Never pull the flute when disassembling, rather twist each part backwards and forwards and gently coax it off.
- Try to avoid very dry conditions and do not leave the flute in direct sunlight or near a source of heat.
