James Galway 16 Flute Video

James Galway recently did a video where he played 16 of his flutes. He took out the color so there was no cheating as to what material the flute being played was made out of. I thought they all sounded great.

Here are the details of which flute was which.

  1. Lois Lot silver 10032
  2. Muramatsu silver EX 53320. / Muramatsu Pads
  3. A.K. Cooper 164 silver with a Haynes Head / Pads unknown
  4. Muramatsu all silver 14657 / Muramatsu Pads
  5. Muramatsu Platinum 44755 / C# trill Muramatsu Pads
  6. J.Brogger. 18k gold 555 with a Nagahara head. c# trill key and Straubinger Pads
  7. Muramatsu 18k gold 61700 / C# trill Muramatsu Pads
  8. A. K. Cooper 14k gold 188 (Berlin Phil flute) Left hand low C# key Pads Unknown
  9. Emanuel 18k gold 150 C# Trill key Pads unknown
  10. A.K.Cooper. 14k gold 197 Straubinger Pads
  11. Kanichi Nagahara 20k gold 550 C# Platinum riser
  12. Muramatsu 9k gold 64200 / C# trill Muramatsu Pads
  13. Muramatsu 14k 38220 Muramatsu Pads
  14. Kanichi Nagahara 18k gold 518 C# Trill key and Platinum riser
  15. Muramatsu 24k gold 60100 / C# trill key Muramatsu Pads
  16. Muramatsu 24k gold 55555 / Switchable split E and Muramatsu pads.

I’m curious as to why Sir James does not have a Powell nor a Haynes in his collection? Or even a Yamaha?
