6 keyed Glen Watson for sale

6 keyed Glen Watson for sale

In a moment of financial madness I bought an Olwell from one
of my local session colleagues. So now I need to sell off my
6 keyed Glen Watson flute. It is worth 1700 Euros according
to Watson’s web site: http://www.watsonflutes.com

If you search this site you’ll find nothing but good things about
this flute - it’s probably the best quality 6 keyed flute you can buy
at this price. I’ve enjoyed my year of playing it, but I need to
move on and I’ve discovered keys aren’t all that useful. If I need
to play in weird keys, I can just go onto the fiddle.

A flute player has arrived here in Aberdeen with one of Glen Watson’s flutes, and he’s getting a great sound out of it. That looks a pretty good price for a 6-keyed flute.

If I want to play in wierd keys, I just pull out my F or G whistles. Having said that, I wouldn’t mind 3 keys on my flute (but can’t afford this, sorry).

Part of my motivation is to find out what substance lies behind
the Olwell hype.

I can second that. I’ve been playing Watson 6-key for 4 years now. It’s perfectly in tune, easy to play and has a great tone, not to mention superb craftmanship. Of a bunch of similarly priced instruments I’ve tried out, nothing came close.
