The Vigore models from Pearl's Elegante series feature a Sterling Silver "Forza"-style headjoint with a solid 3K Gold lip plate, producing a vibrant, full-bodied tone with incredible projection. The Vigore also features the C# trill key, which drastically simplifies a number of awkward trill and tremolo fingerings, as well as improving clarity and pitch stability when playing open C#. Along with the D# roller, which makes it easier to achieve a fluid transition between the D# key and the lower keys of the footjoint, these features provide the instrument with excellent playability and a truly professional sound quality.
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.
