FS: Eight Key Metzler Cocus Flute

Re: FS: Eight Key Metzler Cocus Flute

I have a nearly identical Metzler flute to this one.

Mine is from 1857 (date and original owner, John Pope, engraved on the lip plate), fully restored, with a Hamilton headjoint to make it play at 440 without having to pull the slide all the way out with the original A:456 headjoint.

I find it to be a fantastic instrument, hopefully this one is similar for whoever ends up with it.

Michael, I am glad to hear you are pleased with your Metzler, they are incredible flutes. It’s always interesting to hear of instruments with interesting provenance, thank you for sharing. :)
