Listen to Jillian O'Malley play Touch Me if You Dare (reel):
Listen to Robert Harvey play 'The Old Flail' on the McNeela African Blackwood Flute below:
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. Lightly oil the bore only when absolutely necessary and if in a particularly dry climate, as over-oiling can cause cracks. Use cork grease on the cork lapping to allow for ease of disassembling.
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. Always warm up before play.
Comes with a top quality foam-lined flute box
