|Alto Flute with C foot.||Sold.|
Powell, V. Q.
|This is listed in Powell's record book as hand made, French model, low B, gold embouchure. In fact, it is Powell's copy of a Louis Lot flute from one of Lot's successors, possibly as late as Chambille. No gizmo, but low B is independent.||Sold.|
Clair Godfroy, ainé
|This is the number 14 in the Godfroy price list, but with D foot (not offered on the 1878 price list), namely a ring-keyed conical Boehm flute with Maillechort keys and trim, and a D foot. The 1878 price list gives this model, with C foot, at F 210. In the same price list an 8 keyed flute with silver keys costs F300. The key work is basically a modification of their cylinder flute mechanism, with five rings instead of perforated holes. The G# is Dorus, the thumb a full Briccialdi, with two holes. The trill is to the thumb key. There is a full backclutch, yet the rings make it unnecessary to decouple the reverse motion (as it is on the cylinder flutes). Thus the RH1 Bb closes all the rings but the Dorus A.||Sold.|
|This is a modified model 7, silver and plated flute with C foot. Bb trill.||Removed.|
|This is the model 6, silver flute with B foot, with a specially ordered gold lipplate. The trill is to Bb. Everything is original, except the padwashers and springs.||Sold.|
