Our Description

As the choice of Altes, Taffanel, Hennebains and Gaubert, one could say that the Louis Lot flute has been "instrumental" in the formation of the French concept of sound; indeed, this particular make of flute has been intimately associated with the development and spread of the French school of flute playing.

Because of their distinct sound, Lot flutes have been much sought after by a small group of players (mostly enthusiasts and exponents of the French School). Of late, there has been an increase in the popularity of Louis Lot flutes among the general flute playing public.

Roughly 10,400 flutes were numbered during the ninety-seven year period of the company's activity. However, these were not all created equally, so anyone considering the purchase of one of these instruments should be armed with information as to which flutes are considered best and what to look for.

 

This Model 5 Louis Lot, dating from 1884, was built under Debonneetbeau's ownership. This features an independent G# and separate straps for the trill keys and main mechanism. The trill is to Bb.
