Specialty Fifes

I don’t often make instruments from European Boxwood… Not cheap, takes time to season properly, and even then it can fail along the process.  But I made one of my MCM fifes of EuroBox – typically requested for historical reproductions – and decided to place it here.  Trad. Bb, 10-hole chromatic.
