There's a new beginner flute on the block. It's the Silverwood Flute by Tony Millyard and Sophie Matthews. It's a hybrid flute - wooden head joint and aluminium body. I've been lucky enough to get hold of one, so I put it through its paces! I played it loud and high, slow and fast. To summarise I liked it! But watch the video and make your own mind up!
The flute is available directly from their website at a price of £189 inc vat.
The two tunes I play in the video are The Willows and The Green Gates.
