The original owner of this Gemeinhardt flute bought it from Giant Steps Music brand new. She only played it for about 3 months before she decided to purchase a high-end Miyazawa flute instead.
This flute is in spectacular condition, and the headjoint, body, and footjoint are sterling silver. It has been cleaned and serviced by Giant Steps Music.
Brand new, the M.S.R.P. for this instrument is $ 3,749.00.
From Gemeinhardt's website:
The Gemeinhardt 33SB professional flute is hand assembled and finished by experienced artisans dedicated to creating instruments of incomparable quality and enduring beauty. All professional models feature a unique Gemeinhardt pointed pad cup design. Also, all of our 33 professional flutes are now custom with a heavier crown as well. The new C1 Galway Crusader sterling silver and platinum blended alloy headjoint is now available with this instrument.
