Chris Wilkes 8 key Pratten for sale on C&F

There’s a Chris Wilkes 8-key Pratten with engine-tuned silver rings for sale on Chiff & Fipple. The flute once belonged to Jean-Michel Veillon. Photos and sound files of tunes played on the flute. Grab it while you can

Depends on what it costs, doesn’t it? I’m sure it is a gem, but gems don’t come cheap. Unless I were made of money or a working professional, I’d opt for a restored vintage 8-key.

Maybe, the vintage flute and vintage electric guitar market has taken a down turn. Prices have dropped a lot in the recession. I guess this Wilkes will find a buyer though. I bought a Rudall Carte 8 key for a very reasonable price last autumn.

Have you got a link for it, SW? I couldn’t see it though that was just a quick look.
