BEAUTIFUL MATEKI MO-02 HANDMADE SOLID SILVER HEAD FLUTE WITH CLOSED-HOLES, OFFSET G AND C-FOOT

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a Mateki MO-02 closed hole flute, handmade by one of the world’s top makers. MATEKI means Magic Flute in Japan and this small company have long been regarded as on of the best Japanese makers. Started by Mr S.Watanabe (deceased), a former craftsman of Suichi Tanaka, they have prided themselves on their craftsmanship and producing flutes of the highest calibre.

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 MO-02 and has a hand cut headjoint, handmade/constructed silver plated body with closed 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.

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. This particular flute has been cherished and is in beautiful condition with no marks. It has been fully cleaned and adjusted ready to play. 

 

An excellent alternative would be the Muramatsu EXIII Closed Hole Flute which also has a rich, warm sound and powerful projection.
