von Huene baroque flute after Bressan in ebony with silver key, a=415. Pierre Jailliard Bressan, an immigrant from France to England, became the outstanding woodwind maker of London early in the eighteenth century. At first he made flutes in three piece in the "French" fashion, but this particular instrument, perhaps one of his last, is a superb example of early four-piece flute construction in the English fashion (all tenons pointing down). With less taper in the bore than later instruments, it offers a particularly fine lower register with remarkably good high notes. The original was in ebony with silver rings, silver key, and ornate silver inlay over its whole length, and plays at A=410. This copy is in ebony with silver rings and silver key, without inlay, and scaled to A=415.
