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, AND has the almost impossible to stop the tendency to bow or warp with time. 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.  This is of an early design and I have discontinued it, so if you contact me and make an offer, I will be pleased to consider it.  Take note that the body has indeed slightly bowed since it was made a couple of years ago.  Please note that the price listed is 200$ less than the original retail price.
