This Flute has two great defects; it is out of tune some of its notes being too ?at, and some too sharp and it varies in quality of tone - some of its notes being free and clear, and others feeble and muf?ed. The two prin cipal causes of these defects are, the unequal distribu tion of the holes, some being above and others below their correct position, and the existence of closed or shut keys. That these are the causes of the imperfections of this instrument will be demonstrated by a very brief ex amination of the principles upon which the fingered wind instruments are, or obviously should be, constructed.
