Jack Moore is a highly-respected flute maker from Elkhart, Indianapolis (a centre of musical instrument making in the USA), who retired from flutemaking several years ago. He has worked with flute masters such as William Bennett, Tom Green and Bick Brannen.
The sound of a Jack Moore is unique, while his attention to details on the mechanics is extraordinary; he can almost certainly be credited with putting the WIBB scale on the map.
This flute is in fantastic playing condition, it has both B and C footjoints for any type of playing. It would make a great upgrade for any serious player.
Condition can be highly subjective. This information is to be taken as a guide only. E&OE.

About Jack Moore
Jack’s instruments are characterised by a blend of functionality and practicality, which one rarely sees in other instruments. They are aesthetically attractive, however the key is that the instruments are designed to function practically. Jack’s work on bridge mechanisms is exemplary and the mechanisms are not complex but they never fail to work. This shows in all aspects of his work. In retirement Jack builds approximately one flute a month, working a few hours a day.
