The Peeler Metal Fife

Finely machined, heavy gauge, chrome-plated brass instruments

Attention to detail right down to the decorative knurling

During the mid 1900’s, there were several fife makers in Connecticut producing quality, metal fifes from plated brass. Since these fine instruments are no longer being produced, I have been told that it has become, at times, extremely difficult to outfit a new fifer with a quality, metal fife.

After being approached by several corps members over the last few years, Peeler Fifes has decided to re-create these quality instruments. The result is the fife you see pictured today on the Peeler Fifes website. These are finely machined, heavy gauge, chrome-plated brass instruments. Each fife has the decorative knurling that is reminiscent of the style produced by Patrick Caccavale. They are Bb Fifes.
