I was look around at some Antique shops and ran across a Reynolds flute. Everything seemed to be in working order and the pads seemed full. Though I don't know much about flutes, it seemed to be light and flow well. It was somewhere around 30xxx I believe but any info about serials is appreciated since it's sketchy with the fire in the 40s..

I was originally just going to move on and had no plans of going back, but I came up with the idea of buying it as a gift for a friend. She's been in bed 90% of the time for about a year due to a serious illness and is interested in getting her flute playing back.

Would this be worth anything to me/her?

Thanks,

Probably not worth much. They were made by Gemeinhardt and are identical until Reynolds switched to having them made by Artley sometime in the 1960s.

I played one for many years. Got it used ~ 1973-74. It was the first open hole offset G flute I ever saw. Had a silver head. Served me well.
