Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautiful Philipp Hammig wooden flute. Hammig are renowned flute and piccolo makers and are coveted by some of the world’s top players.
This particular flute has a Grenadilla wood body, closed-holes with offset G and split E. It has nickel silver, silver plated keys with pointed key arms, a C# trill key which also combines as a top G/A trill key and the footjoint has D# and C# rollers. It has been completely overhauled and restored with new pads and hand cut corks and is in beautiful condition. The headjoint has been newly silver clad with sterling silver and has the added bonus of a reform headjoint. The head is surprisingly good with excellent response and the reform lip really helps to focus the sound.
A beautiful professional flute with lots of upgrades by one of the world’s top makers. Superb for any player wanting to move towards a more ‘wood’ sound but still with the projection and clarity that a metal flute offers.
PLEASE NOTE – There has been a small crack repair on the top of the body which is solidly glued. The case is not original and whilst it provides protection it is not a great fit for the flute so I would consider looking at a replacement.
