Artley 1957 Silver Flute

Fun Google Facts:

When did Artley start making flutes?

Donald A. Artley started the Artley Flute Co. sometime in the 1930s in Elkhart, Indiana. Initially, the company provided flutes to a firm in New York, but the brand’s reputation grew.
In 1953, the company rebranded to become D. and J. Artley, Inc. before another name change to simply Artley, Inc. five years later. As the company grew, it started working with C. G. Conn as the primary distributor of Artley flutes.

What are Artley flutes made of?

As you might expect, Artley flutes are made of metal, with solid silver and silver plating being the most common. The exact materials varied between models, with student instruments using a layer of silver plating over nickel.
However, the top-of-the-line instruments more often used solid silver throughout the headjoint, body, and mechanism.

How good are Artley flutes?

Artley flutes were some of the best flutes on the market when they were in production. The brand made instruments for students, professionals, and every flute player in between.
While I’ve never played an Artley flute, I’ve heard a lot of great things about them. Many players who own an Artley love their flutes even though they aren’t the newest.
The brand’s height of popularity occurred around the same time as many other Elkhart-based flute brands, such as Armstrong. While Artley isn’t the most prevalent today, it can be worth getting your hands on one.
