Sam Murray has restored this handsome early flute in flamed boxwood and bone with a silver key at the foot. Made by Christopher Gerock in London in circa 1820.
Plays modern pitch (A=440) when warmed up. A crack at the back of the right hand joint has been expertly repaired and has remained stable with regular playing for over a year now.
The sound is mellow with great tonal depth, some chiff and is perfect for playing airs. This would make a great recording flute and is a steal at the price as this maker usually sells for between €1,400 and €2,100 at auction.
