The Stradivarius of the flute world, Louis Lot's exquisite instruments are the stuff of legends. This is on of those extraordinary Louis Lot silver flutes. Not many of them come up for sale on the world market.
Playing older flutes is like stepping back in time. This is a vintage Louis Lot flute, number 9452.And it comes with its original leather case (which probably contavine a piccolo flute as well). It was acquired initially from an estate sale in Paris, France, and given to my wife who loved the sound of the older flutes. Flute which, of course, is quite costly. This flute was completely overhauled by Akiyama Yoshiteru who is known as the only specialist of Louis Lot flutes in Japan and who has gone as far as making replica L. Flutes using 19th century silver. He's the fellow in the photo, alongside myself. The flute was completely dismantled, cleaned, the pads replaced, the springs changed, head joint cork changed.
