Fife A
This fife is patterned on antiques in our collection, notably Hall and Firth Pond fifes, and shares a bore style with these and the Cloos fifes of the Civil War era, as well as the Gerrary fifes of the mid-20th century.  We call this a “small bore Bb model”, because the old style straight bore is smaller than that of our Traditional Model fife. It’s been said that these small bore style fifes were popular in Civil War times, because it was important to quickly train the young fifers so they could play the duty calls – the highest notes of the upper register are easier to reach than with the other model fifes. In any case, the “small bore Bb” maintains a following to this day because of the lingering influences of the Cloos factory fifes, and later makers who followed in that style.  The Veteran Fifer Model fife has a simple profile and short brass ferrules, with a round embouchure hole and plain-edge finger holes.  Each fife is crafted of the finest intrument grade material, and packaged with a cleaning rod.
