MATEKI M0-002 FLUTE – SOLID SILVER HEAD, OPEN-HOLE WITH OFFSET G AND C-FOOT IN BEAUTIFUL, FULLY SERVICED CONDITION
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a superb handmade flute by one of the world’s top makers. MATEKI means Magic Flute in Japan and this small company have long been regarded as one of the best Japanese makers. Started by Mr S.Watanabe, a former craftsman of Suichi Tanaka, they have prided themselves on their craftsmanship and producing flutes of the highest quality. As a result, they are known for their beautifully rich and mellow tonal colours and are perfect for cross-over work and jazz.
This particular model is the M0-002 and has a hand cut headjoint, silver-plated body with open holes, pointed key arms, offset G and C Foot. It is a superb flute with a responsive and warm sound and these models are extremely hard to find on the used market. This flute is in beautiful condition and has been fully serviced. As these flutes rarely come up and are of such lovely quality in construction and sound. I would strongly recommend this to any advanced student or wind doubler.
