Re: Unknown flute with numbers only

Could you upload the pictures to imgur and share a link?

If you hold the headjoint by the crown and lightly flick the far end do you hear it ring (plated) or thud (silver)?

Re: One more topic about eBay flutes... wooden ones that time!

Worth the try? If you won't be upset if it's a piece of crap and you're out close to a thousand dollars, or maybe just a couple hundred for shipping/custom duties if you return it, maybe. If you buy it, do report back with your experience. Would be interesting to hear about the quality on that flute...

Re: WT Armstrong Flute Serial Number

Some early armstrongs were marked 'model number' 'letter' 'four digit serial' In your case model 104, 's', 2510, should date to ~1970. Compare the marking on this model 90 to the one on the 104 you came across. http://i.imgur.com/hMiKzAZ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/6LjCSY4.jpg http://www.conn-selmer.com/...
