Image: Replica of a Medieval Flute

This flute is a recreation of a Medieval flute built by Boaz Berney, based on the research done by Renaissance flutist Claudio Santambroggio. The flute is patterned on an instrument in the Musikinstrumenten Museum in Berlin (Berlin Musical Instrument Museum). Santambroggio identified the flute as Medieval based on “its wide bore and thicker walls - more than on any surviving tenor renaissance flute. Another interesting feature is the grouping of its holes, not two groups of three holes, but a single group of six holes, more or less equally spaced.
