Berkeley Hand Engrave Bb &C Silver Flute 16 Key Close
Berkeley Pro C and Bb Silver 16 Key Flute with Hand Engraven Art. Each flute is unique-no two are alike. We have an artist in China. He has a gift in the art of engraving. I have seen many pretty engraved decorations. But this guy has special style: not too busy and not too little. As the mouthpiece areas are small his art is just perfect. Also comes with Case. without handle. with handle one needs to pay some more money. I believe all the music teachers will like this flute a lot, especially when you are teaching with trumpet and clarinet together, your kids don't need to play in Bb with Bb and Eb 2 hard key. I have seen most kids give up to play flute because Bb is not so easy to play. If you need to know
