HANDCRAFTED SANKYO CF-301 SOLID SILVER CLOSED HOLE FLUTE WITH OFFSET G, SPLIT E AND 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. This Sankyo CF301 solid silver closed hole flute is a superb professional model and benefits from a solid sterling silver headjoint, solid silver body and silver plated keys with drawn tone-holes. It has a pure and focused sound, rich in the lower register and bright and easy throughout the higher register.
 
This particular flute has had one owner and has been very well looked after. It does not have any dents/scratches to the body, it has been cleaned and polished, oiled and set-up ready to play. Pads are used but have plenty of life and are well seated so we would not replace them. I have played this flute and loved its sound, it really has a superb tonal quality and is perfect for advancing students or pro players. Current retail price is £4,495 for this model so this is superb value for a used model, especially in this condition.
