An interesting German flute from the 1950’s.
Werner Wetzel (1910 – 1995), Berlin.
Plateau keywork to low B, rosewood body,
Roller on D# key.
Both B-C trill and B-flat shake.
Embouchure measures 10.5 X 12.5 mm and is original.
Wood is in fine condition, no issues anywhere.
Original leather-covered case.
The flute plays well at A = 440.
Born in Markneukirchen, Wetzel established his own workshop in East Berlin, eventually found his way to Musik Hieber in Munich.
The rosewood body and the German-style embouchure give this fine flute a very full and dark tone-color, perfect for Brahms or Mahler.
