This handmade baroque flute after Palanca is One of my favourites baroque flute. It is One of the stronger sounds among the baroque flute, especially for those who are used to the modern flautists, due to its oval embouchure. Palanca’s flute is a universal instrument that covers a wide-range of flute repertoire. It is especially suited for music by Locatelli, Platti, Händel and also J. S. Bach. As such, it is highly recommended by all the baroque flute teachers. Carlo Palanca was an instrument maker in Turin, where he died aged 95 in 1783. Unlike other baroque flutes, Palanca's instrument has an oval embouchure which gives a more powerful sound than a round embouchure. The original Palanca flute, in a private collection in Frankfurt, is made of ebony which focusses the sound even more. Nevertheless, it is not a “crude” instrument, but rather offers the player a wide range of tonal shades. The usually very muted cross-fingered notes such as F, G# and Bb are especially robust and dense on this flute. This flute is made in rare well-aged cocobolo and like the original has a strong, direct sound. It comes with a decorative, handmade soft case and care oil. this Palanca model is also available in European boxwood \ ebony \ african blackwood.
