Sam Murray African Blackwood Flute
Sam Murray is celebrated the world over for the quality and craftsmanship of his superior flutes. This renowned flute maker from Belfast has been honing his craft for almost fifty years. He took a break from flute making for a few years but was in such demand that he made a return to the craft. McNeela Instruments is incredibly proud to be the sole distributor of Sam’s sublime wooden flutes today.
We are extremely lucky to be able to offer this stunning flute in the key of D. Made from rare African Blackwood, a wood so dense it sinks in water, the sound produced is rich with great complexity and tone; add to that the big volume and you've got the perfect session flute. Every note is pitch perfect, it's easy to fill and plays as comfortably as a whistle, performing excellently in all arenas from large concert auditoriums to cosy session snugs.
The Sam Murray handmade flute is a worthy investment for the dedicated musician looking to perfect their craft and delight listeners. It also comes with a smart foam-lined box in which to store your instrument. Neat and sturdy, it's great for travel.

Praise for Sam Murray's Keyless African Blackwood Flutes
'It's superb. A master instrument from Murray. Needless to say, the tone is magnificent, the low D strong and easy, and octaves very well in tune. Beautifully made, gorgeous chocolate brown colour, light to hold, easy to fill. The McNeela case is fantastic, strong and light and protective and really high quality. I never had such a lovely flute in my life. A dream. Thanks!'
- Andrew B.
