Louis Lot became official supplier of flutes to the Paris Conservatoire on Louis Dorus's appointment as flute professor in 1860.

So his name is attached to the typical silver cylindrical Boehm flute that became standard equipment for players of the French Flute School for the next hundred years.

Lot and his partner Vincent Hypolite Godfroy made the first French commercial model of Boehm's ring-key flute in 1837, and ten years later the firm purchased the right to make Boehm's cylinder flute of 1847 in France.

At the Paris exhibition of 1867 Louis Lot presented a new design having a thicker tube, larger toneholes and a bigger, more square embouchure, together with a sturdier mechanism in which the modern 'independent' closed G# key replaced the Dorus G#.
