Keyless Irish Flutes 

Resonance Model Flute, Blackwood with Silver Rings  $570.00

Resonance Model Flute, Rosewood  $375.00

The new “Resonance” Model Flute really honks on low D for that classic, wooden-flute tone that’s rich in harmonics. Dynamic expression is improved overall: can play louder on all notes with better clarity. Notes like E and A hold their own in the rest of the scale due to changes in the embouchure hole, conical bore, and undercut finger holes. Holes #3 and #6 are offset to shorten the reach and make this flute more comfortable to hold than others. A=440, great intonation, medium-sized holes, laser engraving. Internal cork joint serves the purpose of a tuning slide without the danger of cracking as would be the case with a metal liner. Two years in the making, designed by Walt Sweet.

Perfect for Irish Music. Suitable for beginner and expert alike.

Available in color-matched laminated birch wood, African Blackwood with three sterling silver rings and an end cap. Has a beautiful, long-lasting, low-maintenance finish (like its little brother, the Professional Model Fife in High D). Left-hand or zero-offset fingerholes are available on special order.

Our Celtic Flutes, Irish Flutes, Classical Flutes - whatever you choose to call them, are modeled after the best hand-crafted English flutes played by Charles Nicholson or R.S. Pratten in the early 19th century, and today are highly prized by players of Irish Music.
