Glass Fluted

Glass flutes??????????????

Anyone know where I can buy one? I checked everywhere online and could not find a store that sells them. And do glass flutes sounds the same as silver plated flutes?

Thanks. Best answers gets 10 points.
There are such things as glass plated flutes. I've seen pictures and I've seen famous flute players with them and other public school students also have them as well.

There are not glass-plated flutes - but there ARE glass flutes. I have one. No, you do not play them anything like a standard C concert flute - these have no keys. They use the same fingerings as early wooden 6-hole flutes. They are NO substitute for a regular C concert flute - no way. And whatever you have seen public school kids walking around with - I seriously doubt that it is a Hall flute or any other brand - maybe you are talking about a fife, or a plastic recorder, or something else. Something as costly and delicate as a glass flute is hardly going to be the Next Middle School Fad.

This is the kind I have. Comes with a fingering chart.

Now, there are concert flutes in museums (I was just in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, and saw these this past week) that are made of porcelain, and one made of greenish *uranium glass*. Yup - it is actually slightly radioactive, and was not made to be played all the time, but as a presentation gift ( made by Laurent, I think . . ). You can also find glass flutes (and flutes made out of bones, tusks, etc.) in the Dayton C. Miller Collection which is housed in the basement level of the Madison Building of the Library of Congress. You cannot *just show up* and expect to get in - you must *apply* months ahead of time, and the curator, Robert Sheldon, may admit you. Secret Service guys, walkie-talkies - the whole deal - it's scary and funny at the same time. You can access this collection online as well.
