BEAUTIFUL MURAMATSU ST SOLID SILVER HANDMADE FLUTE WITH OPEN-HOLES, DRAWN TONE HOLES AND B-FOOTJOINTS IN SUPERB CONDITION
Muramatsu flutes stand in a class of their own and are some of the most sought-after flutes in the world. The sound is rich and lush and allows a wide range of tonal colour. The Muramatsu ST solid silver handmade flute was the older professional model made from the 1962 until 1981. It was replaced in 1981 with the AD model, which in turn was replaced with the current DS model in 2003. At the time it was one of the top silver flutes that Muramatsu offered and featured a solid silver head, body, tube and keys.
This particular flute has open holes with inline G and B foot. It has been completely overhauled with new pads (Pisoni Lucien Deluxe) and corks and the silver buffed to a beautiful unmarked condition. This is a superb set-up and a stunning flute and was probably made around the late 1970’s-1980 and is 442HZ. It plays very nicely throughout the registers with a full, rich and powerful sound. Quite frankly a lot of flute for the money, these flutes last a lifetime and the older models are always sought-after for excellence of build quality.
