About This Flute
This beautiful handmade professional vintage flute is in a much higher class than the current Armstrong Heritage flute, which is mass-produced.  It was carefully handmade in the 60's, competing with the top-of-the-line Haynes and Powells at the time, and became a prototype of sorts. Tom Green and Jack Moore, who are (and were) well-respected world class flute makers, were at Armstrong at the time.

Condition
This flute has been extremely well-taken-care-of, and is in excellent condition with no major dents, dings, scratches, or tarnish.  The pads are in good shape and seal well with a light touch all the way down to low C.  Many vintage flutes need a complete overhaul.  This flute needs nothing, as it has been completely professionally checked over, adjusted and cleaned by my trusted repair tech.

Price Comparison
I see other ads for similar used Heritage models stating that a comparable flute like this would cost $6000.  While I can see where this thought comes from, my strong opinion is that, while this is a very nice professional instrument, vintage flutes and current flutes are not directly comparable, as many things have changed in the flute-making world over time.

Asking $1850 plus a small shipping fee.  Worlwide shipping is available in some circumstances.  Please contact me for more information.
