EDWARD ALMEIDA PROFESSIONAL SOLID SILVER FLUTE (SUPERB - Musical Instruments - By Owner


⭕ STUNNING EDWARD ALMEIDA SOLID SILVER OPEN-HOLE FLUTE (SOLDERED TONE-HOLES) WITH IN-LINE G AND LOW B FOOTJOINT IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION.

EDWARD ALMEIDA WORKED AND STUDIED UNDER VERNE POWELL IN THE LATE 1950s, EARLY 60s BECOMING LATER A PART OWNER OF THE SHOP AND THEN STARTED PRODUCING HIS OWN HAND-CRAFTED FLUTES FROM 1962 UNTIL THE LATE 1970s. THE CRAFTMANSHIP EXCEEDED THAT OF HIS FORMER MENTOR AND UNFORTUNATELY ONLY A FEW HUNDRED FLUTES WERE MADE BEFORE HIS DEATH IN 1992, MAKING THIS AN EXTREMELY RARE AND SOUGHT-AFTER FLUTE. I HAVE NOT SEEN AN ALMEIDA FLUTE FOR SALE FOR SOME YEARS AS THEY GENERALLY GET SOLD FROM PLAYER TO PLAYER WITHOUT EVER SEEING THE LIGHT OF DAY. THIS FLUTE WAS FULLY CHECKED RECENTLY BY TOPWIND IN LONDON AND WAS REPADDED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WITH STRAUBINGER PADS.
