FEATURES: (taken from Yamaha website)
This flute is made of durable nickel silver with an attractive silver-plate finish. It features the same high-grade design and craftsmanship as the 300 and 400 series models, and has excellent response and intonation.
Key posts have been thickened and redesigned for improved durability and strength to maintain accurate rod alignment.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for comfortable, natural-feeling performance. They are hand-assembled and adjusted for a perfect ‘touch’ and balance.
The headjoint included with all student flutes features a double flare taper and unique embouchure hole undercut design for excellent response and a warm rich tone. It helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound, while more advanced players will appreciate its even, quick response in all registers.
The remarkable Yamaha Scale provides extremely accurate and centered intonation. Precise, consistent manufacturing processes ensure that every single flute is of equally high quality. Yamaha’s special pads resist dehydration or swelling. The double bladder covering ensures perfect seating. Felt pads are used under keys where tolerances are close for a ‘professional’ feel and silent mechanism. Neoprene is used where larger stoppers are required for smooth noiseless action.
