That’s much like my Martin Freres 8 key, which is by far the easiest flute I’ve ever played - it’s what I play when I bother, since I mostly play the banjo with other people. Mine is also cocus with lined sockets which needed repairing; yours is fancier though, the plates for the keys and the ornamental headjoint. French flutes work great but are a fair bit quieter than the English variety ITM uses.

Yes Kevin, many of these early French Simple System flutes have a wonderful sweet tone, but alas not powerful enough for the larger Irish Sessions. So easy to play, they have their own charm - wouldn’t be without one. :)
