Flute History and Instrument Purchase
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hi everyone, I need a bit of help. I've bought and old Mateki from 1985-86 and as the owner couldn't assure whether the flute in 440 or 442 was, do your have any info about the flute that were made those years? Or any measurements I can find? I'm having some hard time getting to A=442, that's why I am asking.

I don't know the Mateki tunig, but you you might check the position of the headjoint cork to be sure it is in the correct place. Improper cork position can cause intonation issues.
