Sankyo AF201 Alto Flute – Silver Head, Closed Holes, C-Foot
Sankyo have been making flutes since 1968 and their flutes are acclaimed all over the world for beauty of tone and evenness of technique. Each instrument is hand-made from carefully selected materials and is constructed to a very high standard. Sankyo maintain that they have pursued the ‘perfect scale’ by building a precise mechanism and hand manufacturing every pad. The Sankyo AF-201 alto flute is a beautiful combination of craftsmanship and sound with a rich and full colour from the sterling silver head giving superb projection and resonance.
This particular flute was new in January 2021 and has been demonstrated only. It is therefore still a brand new flute and pristine throughout. The retail price of this currently is £6,995 and so this is a rare opportunity for someone to obtain this beautiful instrument at a large saving. This instrument has come directly from Japan with paperwork and is ready to go.
