Clair Godfroy, Ainé

Paris France
This extremely rare silver flute is the fully completed French Model in use to this day, minus only the Bb trill. The side G# was perfected, and this would seem to be the highest reaches of the silver flute of the time. This instrument was made just as the Boehm flute was becoming accepted at the Conservatoire. Toneholes appear to be of uniform size. No B trill. Lipplate chimney with lower flange only. Embouchure measures 12.2x10.2 mm., and is cut at a bit less than 7 degrees. C foot. The cork screw threads, by the way, are cut with the same thread as Louis Lot #218. The Godfroy stem is a bit wider than the Lot's, so the Godfroy crown screws all the way down the Lot stem, but not vice-versa.Sorry, Sold.

Model 6, silver flute with B foot. B touch completely independent, yet part of the "pinless" footjoint cluster. Gold embouchure, gold springs. Bb trill. This is what we call a "Villette system" flute. Shortly after Louis lot retired in 1876, Henri Villette changed the firm's design to include adjusting screws at the back clutch and shoulder clutches, while eliminating the F# tail in the backclutch. This is unquestionably the finest flute of this system we have seen.Sold.
