FS: 2004 Eamonn Cotter 4 keyed flute
I have a blackwood Eamonn Cotter flute with Cnat, Bb, G#, and short Fnat keys. It has a one piece centre section. I have the original case. It is a lovely flute which has been used for sessions, gigs and recordings, kept well oiled, rings and keys regularly polished, cling film on the pads when oiling to keep them good, etc. The bore is smooth, the pads fit tightly, the rings are secure. It’s a belter. I’ve been keeping it for emergencies since buying an Olwell in 2012, but I’m now wanting to sell it to raise money for a C19th flute I’ve found.
In 2007 I had the Fnat key block repaired by Andy May of Edinburgh. It’s a very neat repair. In 2008 I had to get the barrel replaced and the tenon repaired after an accident on the road. That work was done by Eamonn himself. It’s been absolutely fine since then.
If anyone wants to ask about it, to see some photos, or hear some sound files, please email me at markmalinky at hotmail dot com
I would like to get in the vicinity of £1700 for it, plus P&P. I don’t know the shipping cost, but will make enquiries if I get any interest. I prefer not to use Paypal for a UK buyer, but happy to discuss options with anyone outside the UK. £1700 is about 2100 Euro or about $2500 US.
I’m based in central Scotland, so anyone close by is welcome to come to Edinburgh or Fife to see/hear/try it for themselves.
