This is a great playing flute! It was Artley's fully professional hand-made flute in answer to Haynes and Powell. It was patterned after Frederick Wilkins' Powell flute. These flutes were highly thought of and many professionals used them. All Wilkins model flutes were made with a solid sterling silver body, head joint, and foot joint.It's a beautifully playing instrument with a nice even scale. This instrument has open holes, a B-foot joint, in-line G. The outfit includes a hard case, case cover, and cleaning rod. This flute is in perfect playing condition. The pads are all very good to new. I had my tech go over it a couple of years ago. Since then, I've started repairing instruments and I went over it a few weeks ago, replacing three pads on the foot joint and reseating the two trill key pads.
