Features

Mouthpiece - Ergonomically designed mouthpiece for a comfortable feel during long performances and rehearsals.

Core Bar - One piece construction for increased durability.

Ergonomic Keys - Specially designed keys to offer grip and comfort across the playing surface.

Nickel Body - Nickel body with silver plating for a classic look and tone.

Offset G - Encourages an improved finger technique and better posture.

B Footjoint

The flute features an extended "B" footjoint, which allows the instrument to play notes down to a low B, a semitone below the lowest note of the standard "C" footjoint. As well as improving the instrument's range, the longer tube adds a little extra resistance as you play, providing the flute with a darker, more mellow tone.

French Style Open Hole Keys

The flute's Inline G key design, favoured by professional players, offers a more "traditional" response than the alternative Offset G mechanism. The instrument also features "French"-style open hole keys, popular with flautists of every level. This key design requires more precision to play than "Plateau"-style closed keys, but offers greater freedom of expression and allows players to experiment with more advanced techniques such as quarter tones and glissandos.

Pinless Mechanism and One-Piece Core Bar

The combination of the pinless mechanism and one-piece bar design helps to provide incredible strength to the instrument, without hindering how freely the keywork responds or adding weight to the instrument. A great choice for students who take their instruments to and from school regularly.
