Rudall Carte


A Rudall Carte concert flute in Ebonite with silver keywork. Rockstro model made in 1891 by Nivarlet. Closed G#, modern pitch.


This flute has many of the features Rockstro favoured, including large tone-holes, extra F# key, and beautiful back clutches. The keys were originally open-hole and have been converted to closed.


We have serviced this flute ready for sale. The flute plays nicely with all the characteristics of Ebonite - e.g. a lyrical precise sound - which was highly regarded by some of the best players of the time.
