Three-part Naust

This model is the earliest Baroque flute that I copy. It is made in three parts, in the style of the so-called "Hotteterre" flute. The original, found in the Musikinstrumenten Museum in Berlin, is one of four surviving three-part Naust flutes, the other two of which are found in museums in St. Petersburg, Paris and Vermillion, SD. This rare original is in excellent condition, and is inspiring both to play and to look at. This model is available with two different styles of embouchure: one after the Berlin original, which is oval and has the longest dimension in the blowing direction (much like the embouchure of a renaissance flute), and the other after the St. Petersburg flute, which is slightly smaller and rounder.
This type of instrument is ideal for playing French repertoire of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries: Lully, Charpentier, Hotteterre, Marais, de la Barre and others.
The Naust flute is available in boxwood at the original pitch (396) or at 392.
