The modern flute was developed by Theobald Boehm who experimented with it from 1832 to 1847, desiring to give it a bigger tone. He finally produced a parabolic (bowl-shaped) head joint attached to a cylindrical body with open-standing keys and finger pads to cover large finger holes. There are typically 16 holes, or four more than the minimum to cover the chromatic notes of an equal-tempered octave. Since then, other minor improvements have been made.
