A remarkable and highly collectable find for the flutist looking for a high quality wooden piccolo with its own charm and personality. Rudall Carte flutes were built in England in the early 20th century, using high quality grenadilla wood. This particular piccolo has seen a good amount of professional use, and is being sold in as-is condition, however with a bit of TLC it will be ready to offer many more years of good service.

The wooden body and head joint are both in very good condition, with no visible evidence of cracks or prior crack repairs. The keywork is in need of a good service, with a number of very old pads, and a little wear and tear in the mechanism overall. Following a restoration, this piccolo will be more than capaable of providing a broad, full piccolo sound, ideal for wind band and orchestral music.

Included with this piccolo is the original wood shell case, with added foam for extra padding. If you're in the market for a well made wooden piccolo with a clear and full sound, and you're willing to take on a fixer-upper, don't pass up this lovely English-made old soul. Pictures to come.
