News about the Hamilton flute:
It has been back to Ireland, and has returned as a 6-key.
I had some difficulty with reaching the long-F key, so Hammy Hamilton make a second key with a longer touch. This didn't cost any extra and did not require returning the flute to Ireland.

Hammy Hamilton, of Cuil Aodha, Ireland, makes some of the finest (some say the finest) wooden flutes available today.
This flute is superb in every way, with a rich, singing, ringing tone, and excellent responsiveness and control over its entire range. It plays easily well into the 3rd octave.
A keyed body is being made for this flute but is not yet ready. I drool with anticipation of the finest flute I have ever played becoming yet better.
