There are no dents, and the pads are in perfect shape having all been replaced, and adjusted to ensure they all properaly seal. The instrument plays perfectly, and allows for a round, pure and rich tone, and the key action is balanced, fast and quiet.
The recent full service of the instrument included the following:
Pad replacement and adjustment,
Felts replaced as needed
Clean and polish,
This flute is the perfect choice for a student wanting to upgrade. Mechanically, the flute is in perfect condition, and Miyazawa flutes are known for their wide range in tone colours, which are also available to the player in this flute. There is some slight tarnishing which I have tried to demonstrate in the photos, but in no way compromises the sound of the flute. I am based in Manchester/ Cheshire, so if you would like to try it before buying or making an offer, you are welcome to come and play it.
