Peloubet, NY 1-key F flute

Instrument: 1-key flute in F, boxwood with ivory rings and brass key (double rings as is common on many American flutes)

Maker: Peloubet, Chabrier, New York - his dates were 1806 - c.1881. Peloubet was well known, particularly as a builder of reed organs, including church instruments of considerable size. In my opinion he was one of the finest American makers of 1 through 8-key flutes. The workmanship, especially cutting of the embouchure is always top-notch.

Pitch: A=440?

Sounding Length: 44.4 cm

Total Length: 57 cm

Notes: initials LK carved in end cap, small HJ joint crack
