"I promised in The Keyed Flute by Johann George Tromlitz (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1996, p. 261) to make available the index of flute information I compiled for that study. You are welcome to make use of it, as long as you send me new material and correct any mistakes you find. Please note that I am not systematically updating or improving the database: it's presented here, for what it's worth, in form and content already 10 years out of date. If anyone would like to make an ongoing project of it, please contact me.
The database file contains listings for about 1800 instruments, with details of attribution, maker's mark, materials, keys, and reports in the literature. (My own copy also lists drawings made by other researchers, and materials (drawings, photos, mouldings) in the collection of Folkers & Powell.) " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
