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 handmade from carefully selected materials and constructed to the highest standards. Sankyo maintain that they have pursued the ‘perfect scale’ by building a precise mechanism and hand manufacturing every pad. The Sankyo wooden flute is a rare flute to find on the used market and is made from carefully selected aged Grenadilla wood. This is matched with sterling silver mechanism, keywork and 10K white gold springs. These flutes are beautifully engineered and the quality of the mechanism and body is second to none.
This particular flute has come directly from Japan, it is in pristine condition throughout and has the traditional cut head. It has open-holes with offset G, split E and C-foot and the pads are superb with plenty of life. Current retail is around £12,500 so I am offering this at an extremely good price. It comes with a material carrycase and hardcase, both in excellent condition.
