Prowse Nicholson Improved
Is anyone using a Prowse/Nicholson flute ( 19th C Flute Makers ) in Irish tune playing ?
Whats your experience in terms of these instruments with:
The low D ( flat? hard to sound, need to "lip" it into tune… )
Intonation ie the scale of the instrument at A440 ( They might have been intended to play at a lower pitch )
Any comparison with Rudalls, or the modern cohort of makers.
