Emerson Flute Found

Postby ChicopeeJohn » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:40 pm

At a garage sale, I came across a Made-In-the-U.S.A. Emerson flute with the number 'C66545' and '1' engraved on it.

I am far from an expert but this is the first flute I've come across that is curved - lite a Button Hook or the letter, "J". The mouth piece isnt on the longer, straight part, but on the smaller, bottom part of the bottom of the J.

Rare? Common?

I don't know what to call this shape / style so I am having trouble learning about it.

Thanks to anybody who can help.

I believe what you have is a student flute designed for students whose arms are too short for a normal flute.

You probably have something like this (although this one has both straight and curved heads):

"Never give a flute player a screwdriver."
