Takahe Flutes

Listing Detail Tabs

At Last! Now you CAN play those unreachable low whistles. Some of my customers have had difficulty reaching the lowest tone-hole of my low C and low D whistles. The issue is not unique to my instruments, since the hole position is determined by physics, not aesthetics or practicality. For some time I have been experimenting with a key, similar to those on a saxophone or clarinet and have managed to arrive at a design that works well. The key clips on to most whistles or flutes with OD from 25mm to 28mm. It stays firmly in place, yet is easily adjustable and seals as well as your finger. The action is as fast as my fingers can do a trill. You can see a demo on YouTube here: Note, auction is for one tone-hole key only.
