The Peeler Ferrary Model Fife
Recreating the look and playability of a classic fife
An excellent choice for the Ancient fifer.
During the mid to late 1900’s the Ferrary fife was the instrument of choice for fife and drum corps throughout the Connecticut River Valley and beyond. It possessed a clarity that was distinctive to this instrument. Today, a fife made by Ferrary sells for two or three times it’s original asking price on auctions held online.
To meet the need for such an instrument today, Ron Peeler has re-created the traditional Ferrary fife in both look and playability. The Peeler “Ferrary” Model fife has shorter polished ferrules that were a trademark of this instrument. It is an excellent choice for the Ancient fifer, as well as the Revolutionary War or Civil War re-enactor.
