Keyless Irish Flute in D Rosewood with silver rings. The flute is priced at $450.00 new from the manufacturer, Sweetheart.
Description from Sweetheart: Our Celtic Flutes, Irish Flutes, Clasical Flutes - whatever you choose to call them, are modeled after the best hand-crafted English flutes which caused women to faint when played by Charles Nichoson or R.S. Pratten in the early 19th century, and today are highly prized by players of Irish Music. For modern Boehm flute players who play what they call "C" flutes: In Irish Style flutes, the key you need for playing Irish music is called the "D" flute by Irish, Folk, and Fife & Drum players. These "Irish" models are preferred for jigs, reels, and other Irish and Contra Dance music. Larger tone holes and different bore provide greater power and superb intonation in the most-used keys of D, G, and A. The lower register is especially full bodied. End plug and sterling silver rings are featured on rosewood models. Price $300.00
