Pierre Naust, Paris, ca.1700


Rosewood wood with nickel key Pierre Naust, Paris, ca.1700 - The original of this flute is in the Music Instrument Museum in Berlin. Unlike other instruments of this three-part construction (Hotteterre, Rippert, etc.) this flute is completely made of cocobolo, without heavy ivory fittings. As a consequence the sound is more cheerful, a little lighter and very charming. This model can be made from ebony or granadilla or boxwood as well.
