PHOTOGRAPH AND NOTES ON REVERSE B / B FLAT THUMB KEYS



The above photograph shows a Haynes Silver Flute which happens to be an Open G# type and which also has the B / B flat thumb keys reversed. In the same way that open G# is a more logical fingering, so is the reverse of the normal B / B Flat Thumb keys and this arrangement is perhaps more likely to be found on open G# flutes.

However it is not necessarily a common option on open G# flutes any more than on closed G# flutes.


The above photograph and notes are as accurate as my knowledge on the subject permits.
