Our Description

Jack Moore was a highly-respected flute maker from Elkhart, Indianapolis (a centre of musical instrument making in the USA). He 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 has been played professionally by a leading London freelance player who originally bought it from Just Flutes.

General Condition

This flute has come to us in beautiful condition and has been through our workshop to put it in tip-top playing order. The mechanism is very light and the sound has a lovely warmth and responsiveness. Do come and give it a try! 

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.
