Hi all, love the forum, just registered.
We're still digging for info but thought I'd ask here whether anyone is familiar with the flute maker Grabet? There's very little (virtually nothing) about them on-line. They apparently also made some other instruments, at least clarinets. I appears to date from the 40s or 50s, is silver, came in a wonderful old Cheney case with hand-tacked red felt lining. It has the serial number 2462 and is stamped with a 3 on all three pieces.
Hoping to get down to the university to look through the Langwill Index this weekend. But if anyone's familiar with Grabet, I'd love to learn more.
