Louis Lot body with B-foot

A rare B-foot with left hand lever

Louis Lot silver flute, body only, most likely from the Barat period. B-foot with left hand lever, model #6 in the Lot pricelist, seamed tubing. Any Louis Lot with a B-foot is rather rare. This is an exquisite player’s flute. We have played on it with Louis Lot and modern headjoints and it plays very beautifully. It has an intimate dark concentrated sound with even registers and good scale. Solder is in excellent condition. Plays well at A=440. Normal B-Bb shake. The left hand low B lever works great for many passages and you never have to hunt for the 2nd roller. Tubing is .014 inches. This flute has recently been restored and needs nothing.


HALLMARKED: V#H & Boar’s Head

The flute body weighs 362 grams.

Centerjoint length: 14-7/16”

Footjoint length: 5-11/16”

If you do not have a headjoint for this flute, may we suggest a custom-made David Chu wood headjoint or a silver Lot 1st generation headjoint. Please contact us for options.
