Bonneville 5434 is a plated flute dating from the 1900s. This flute was overhauled and repadded by us in 2017 and is therefore ready to play.


Condition is generally very good, with some wear on the body in the usual place where the right hand thumb rests. The keywork is tight. The lip-plate is a modern silver replacement. The crown is also a replacement. Comes in its original case in very good condition in need of outer recovering


The headjoint has probably been shortened by just a couple of millimetres, a frequently carried out alteration done with the best of intentions to bring the pitch up and make the flute more playable today.


This is a very playable classic French flute at a keen price.
