The first instrument developed by the Healy Flute Company, the Healy fife is built to last and can be played in tune across three octaves. The Bb fife is available with three (3) tone hole size options, "STANDARD" (smallest), "SPECIAL" (medium), and "DELUXE" (largest)and can be built as 6 or 10 hole fifes.
About 30 days for standard-model fifes and piccolos. Customized instruments will require additional time depending on the level of customization. Payment due in full when your order is placed. We now accept PayPal, personal checks, money orders and direct deposit where available.
The Healy Flute Company can handle almost any level of customization ranging making instruments using different wood types to radically tailored key configurations and tone hole placement to accomodate small-handed players. We also specialize in creating custom keywork to accomodate the Boehm flute players who want to expand into playing wooden flute. Custom instruments usually (but not always) require special pricing and delivery time considerations. For that reason, we prefer to talk to you before you place a custom order so we can provide accurate pricing and delivery estimates
