Please note this limited production flute is currently unavailable.
Sam Murray flutes are known for their rich tone and ease of play and this flute is no exception. Made of chakate - a hard, dense tonewood with a fine grain - it produces a powerful tone that is also beautifully balanced and sweet. Lighter than its African Blackwood counterpart, it's incredibly comfortable to play and a delight to handle.
The beautiful chakate exterior is complemented by sterling silver rings and a silver tuning slide. Its high end finish perfectly complements its superior sound.
A Sam Murray flute is a worthy investment. His instruments can carry you through any stage of your flute playing career and are guaranteed to delight both player and listener.
Don't miss your chance to own this one of a kind, handmade flute from one of Ireland's most talented flute makers.

Sam Murray is celebrated the world over for the quality and craftsmanship of his superior flutes. A renowned flute maker from Belfast, he has been honing his craft for almost fifty years. He took a break from flute making for a few years but was in such demand that he made a return to the craft. McNeela Music is incredibly proud to be the sole distributor of Sam’s sublime wooden flutes today.
Praise for Sam Murray's Keyless African Blackwood Flutes
'A few years ago I invested in a fine flute, crafted by Sam Murray, and the notes that come out are mellow and delicious to the ear.' - Michael Harding, The Irish Times
'It's superb. A master instrument from Murray. Needless to say, the tone is magnificent, the low D strong and easy, and octaves very well in tune. Beautifully made, gorgeous chocolate brown colour, light to hold, easy to fill. The McNeela case is fantastic, strong and light and protective and really high quality. I never had such a lovely flute in my life. A dream. Thanks!' - Andrew B.
