 old wooden flutes???
Author: klook

I just bought a large inventory of old music store stuff......VERY old! I bought it because of the Albert system clarinets involved, and parts.

Now I've discovered a large box with many many wooden flutes, 2-3 different sizes, made by Penzel Mueller for the Marine Corps.

These are full grendadilla, 11 key simple system flutes. The ones that make a sound are fantastic!

I'm not sure what to do with them. Is there a market for these? I was going to keep one of each size and rebuild them to have around, but I literally have upwards of 50 flutes in this box! They are dirty, some are broken, etc.

Also some Ivory headjoints! Both these are cracked but they still blow due to having metal underneath.

Any info would be great!
