Superb Dana Sheridan Flute Head Section, Solid Silver With Solid 14k Gold Lip
NEW SILVER HEAD SECTION, SOLID 14K GOLD EMBOUCHURE AND RISER. The world’s finest flute-maker retired in May of 2018. After more than three decades of building the finest flutes in the world, Dana Sheridan retired. Previously with Haynes, Powell, Brannen and, for the past 20 years, in his own one-man shop, Dana was a perfectionist who produced a handful only…. of superb flutes and a selection of amazing head sections. Of which, this is the only one left. Clean, never dinged or damaged or scratched. Embouchure measures 10.0 X 11.7 mm, somewhat square. Very tall riser: I measure it as 5.4 mm. Tone-color is bright and very liquid. Best suited to a vintage Haynes or Powell or a modern Brannen. 014 inches, so the tenon will fit most hand-made Boston instruments. If you want to us this head on a Japanese import, you’ll need to wrap a small bit of Teflon tape on the tenon. Rare and sublime, this one’s the last Sheridan piece from our collection. Price includes a modern hard-shell case. If it doesn’t sell, I’m happy to keep it for my elderly years. In January of 2020 our small workshop in Wichita celebrated sixty-seven years in business. We are not in the 1952 Wichita telephone directory, but we ARE in the 1953. Over the decades, weve repaired and restored more than two hundred vintage French flutes from Louis Lot, Bonneville, Claude Rive and Buffet-Crampon plus hundreds of professional-quality flutes from Haynes and Powell. We are not amateurs, nor are we a back bedroom operation. We would be pleased to furnish you with references attesting to the above. BEFORE WE SEND ANYTHING TO YOU. The instrument is carefully inspected by us to make certain its spotlessly clean. We disinfect the exterior of the instrument, spray the exterior of the case as well. We do not send anything to you without its being checked and then checked again. A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR SENDING ON APPROVAL. Weve had the same policy for half a century, are always happy to send almost anything for a short trial period. Five days is, we believe, sufficient for a trained musician to decide if the item sent them is a good match. With recorders, clarinets, flutes, and oboes, we remove all the keywork, then give the bodies a quick bath. Soap and water, but not long enough to harm the finish. Keys are lightly sprayed with a disinfectant and pads are lightly swabbed with the same. Then, back in the case after a spray to the exterior and carrying handles of the case. Not sure what the other shops are doing about this issue (Ive asked and have had no replies), but we think our clean-up work is exactly whats required to keep everybody safe. Wichita Band Instrument Company is a small musical instrument emporium located in the center of the USA. Weve been in business since 1953 and have had the same owner since 1963. Originally we were a repair shop that specialized in woodwind and sax restoration. Today we have 13 employees including five of the finest repair technicians in the country. Virtually ALL the items we sell have been fully reconditioned in our own shop, although we do sell a few unrestored historical instruments each year. With a used flute from OUR shop, you know its in the finest condition when it arrives at your home! Heres what we do to all used flutes we sell. The instrument is taken apart and everything washed clean. Dings are next burnished from body, head and foot. After the body-shop works been completed, we swedge hinge-tubes tight again and re-fit them to the flute body. Finally, pads and corks are replaced and the instrument play-tested. Pre 1950 French flutes often require more than twice the restoration time that we need for a modern Haynes or Powell. We use thin double-skin pads of the highest quality and shim each pad in the manner of the best Boston makers. We dont float flute pads with shellac, as did the original Paris workshops. Its in addition to any factory guarantees. For two full years, we will repair or replace, whichever in our estimation is the more advisable, pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer. Wichita Band Instrument Company maintains a repair department capable of restoration work of the highest quality. Even though repairs are essentially free for the first two years, after that period has expired, we remain at your service to maintain and repair your musical equipment forever. Its our service after the sale promise and has been since 1953! Anything we sell can be sent to you for a short approval period without obligation.
