When was your instrument first invented/discovered/used? • The transverse flute was the last of all flutes to be invented. Probably it was first built by nomads in central Asia. It travelled to Europe together with goats and sheep. • The very first flutes of prehistoric ages were made of animal bones. • The earliest picture on which a flute is clearly to be seen is an etruscian relief from near Perusa. It was made in the second or first century b. c.
When was the modern form of your instrument discovered or invented? • 1832 Theobald Boehm finally developed a completely new flute. Almost nothing stayed the same. Instead of wood he used metal, the thickness of the tubes wall, the number, dimension and arrangement of the holes even the mouth-hole were modified by him. Despite critics (first of all tulou) at the beginning, the new instrument succeeded at last. It finally gained acceptance when in 1860 Dorus got the chair at the Paris conservatory. The model of 1832 was a flute with ring keys. The holes for the keys were exclusively placed by acoustical experiments. As not all of them could be reached with the fingers, the instrument was supplied with a completely new key work. This first prototype still had a cylindric headjoint, the conical drilling starting only from the middle joint.
