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.
