However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years

  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Reliable Mechanisms

The YFL262 has been redesigned to better suit the modern day market of flutists. Double bladder pads now have a longer life and maximum seating, whilst neoprene key bumpers have improved strength and are more durable than cork. Nickel-silver, power-forged keys are durable as well as less susceptible to breakage. The key posts are now thicker which results in improved durability and strength that can maintain accurate rod alignment. Alignment markers ensure younger players fit the parts together properly and makes it easier for them to do so.

Keys & Pointed Key Arms

The keys shape and placement have both been ergonomically redesigned to provide comfort and a natural-feeling performance. To improve the precision of the product Yamaha have updated their manufacturing process which results in mechanical accuracy as well as minimizing the need for readjustment over time. The keys are hand assembled before being adjusted for a perfect 'touch' and balance.

Open-Hole Keys

Open-hole keys provide players with the freedom to play modern day music, and other styles of music that would be hard to play using a closed key flute. Hand positioning is more central because players can feel where the hole is on the middle of the key. The open-holes produce bigger sounds and darker tones that really provide an advancement to this instrument. An ideal choice for new players who are exploring their preferred music style.

Adjustment Screws

The YFL282 student flute features unique Yamaha screw resistant inserts which enables smoother adjustments at the same time as gradually loosening the screws. The screw positioning has also changed to provide an easier access.
