Selmer "Omega" Hand Made Sterling Silver Flute

Selmer-Omega1 Selmer-Omega2 Selmer-Omega3

Engraved Gold Lip Plate, all Sterling Silver, B Foot, with useful Double case for a Piccolo.  This Exquisite flute with it's bright sound, wonderful tonal color and projection, is ideal for either the professional or advanced adult player.  Overhauled, in excellent condition.  It is pitced at A440.  This flute had the distinction of being made and protected from sale below it's determined price, made during the 1980’s to middle ’90’s by the Selmer Company.  It was a “proprietary” designation.

Note: The Selmer “Omega” line was a proprietary line offered to particular dealers, as a step-up intermediate flute, made and sold as early as the mid 1980’s thru the 1990’s.  The proprietary line was first established so Internet stores couldn’t sell them (this device was used by other companies as a value protection), and some companies today still have proprietary lines as well as current production.

An unusual feature of this fine Silver flute is that it has a heavy wall thickness of silver and is .014” which gives it an added tonal depth in the 3 registers.  So it is a bit heavier in weight.

Spring Sale priced at $750.00, no tax, no shipping.

Call Jean asap as this beautiful flute won't last here for long.  978-675-5098

Please note: I am a small operation, and I don't take used instruments in trade, or resell used flutes and piccolos to sell new instruments.  I can, however recommend consignment opportunities for prospective customers to explore on their own.  Gold flutes can be provided by personal request.

It has come to my attention that a name brand Asian flute company which markets high end Sterling Silver flutes in the $4,000.00 range is also selling plastic, aluminum anodized flutes with plastic keys for $800.00 to over one thousand dollars!  These flutes play badly, are not repairable, and are basically toys.

They are being sold at one of the last remaining large, nationwide Music Chains.  One was recently purchased in their store by an innocent student's parent in New Jersey.  Some also come in colors, and are basically junk!

Buyers please beware!

When you buy a flute from me, payment for new instruments may be consummated by use of credit card, cashier's check or postal money order.  Used instruments, or instruments personally owned by me, may be paid for by use of credit card, PayPal®, cashier's check or postal money order.
