The wooden head on the Silverwood flute is crafted to give players the authentic feel and sound of a wooden head joint based on the famous Rudall Rose flutes much loved by players of Celtic music. The aluminium body has a couple of great advantages. It is of course very robust and has a nice bright tone, but since it is of a smaller diameter than a wooden flute, the finger holes are much more easily reached by players with smaller hands. The finger holes are also set out on the flute with smaller hands in mind. A great choice as a starter flute, or as a keyless flute to have in your gig bag.
This flute has a boxwood head and blue body. It comes with a simple bag and a tube of grease to keep the joint between the head and body lubricated.
