Flutes in C. From left to right:
A Renaissance tenor recorder (maple), a baroque-style tenor recorder (plastic), a 6-hole transverse flute (bamboo), a baroque transverse flute (boxwood), a wooden Boehm-system flute (grenadilla), and a modern metal Boehm flute.

Below: the history of the flute in one place: this is a display case at the National Music Museum in Vermillion, South Dakota. On the left is a twist-bell bass clarinet, and the saxophone-like instrument on the far-right wall is an Eb alto rothphone.
