Flute for sale

I have a reviole flute (french flute maker) for sale. The flute is in immaculate condition and is 4 years old. It was played for approximately 12 months. Photos will be uploaded in the near future.

If you or anyone you know, might be interested in this flute, you can let them know either.


If you send me a message on TradConnect, we can take it from there! Cheers for your time.
