This is a great playing flute for a beginner. The Gemeinhardt name is well known for making quality student model and professional model flutes. I just finished overhauling this silver plated horn. Overhaul? That means that the flute was disassembled, cleaned and polished. Next, I replaced all the pads and corks then completely regulated it. It comes in its original case and a tuning/cleaning rod is included. All of us, in the shop, played this horn. It really plays very well. This is the same as the one directly below.
I just sold one of these flutes this past weekend. It is exactly the same model of flute and I did exactly the same work on it.

Here we have a exceptionally nice student model flute, the Jupiter “Capital Edition 510”. The body of the instrument is nickel silver that has been silver plated and the lip plate, that’s where you blow into the flute, is gold plated. It comes in its original factory case, which is in great condition, and it comes with a tuning/cleaning rod. That’s all you need. Of course, we disassembled the instrument and completely cleaned it. Next I reassembled it and adjusted it so it plays as good as new. Brand new I’ve seen this model of flute sell for $650.00 to as much as $900.00! So, $525.00 is a very good price for an instrument in this “almost new” condition. Come by the shop and check it out.
This is a great intermediate model, step up from your student model, flute. One change from a student model instrument is this one is solid silver. To you this equates to a better sounding flute. Other features are; open hole keys, in-line G keys, low B foot joint with gizmo key and gold plated lip plate. These are features you see on better flutes meaning intermediate or professional instruments. I did a complete overhaul which means the instrument was disassembled, everything cleaned, all pads and corks were replaced. It plays as well as it did when it was new. A very nice looking horn plus it comes with a French style case and a case cover.

Beware: some of these models come with only a C foot joint so don’t be fooled. These are all features of a better model instrument. I just finished doing a complete overhaul on this flute meaning, it was disassembled, cleaned, buffed and then all the corks and all the pads were changed. For you this means that it plays as good as when it was brand new. It comes in its original French style, hard shell case with a leather case cover. Come by the shop and give it a try.

This is an intermediate model flute which is an upgraded model from your student/beginning model flute. The “”YFL-461” is exactly the same as the “YFL-481”, meaning it is solid, sterling silver, as a matter of fact, it is 92.5% pure sterling silver. You get a much better sound with a silver instrument. It has open-hole keys, a low B foot joint with a gizmo key and here is the only difference, it has “offset G keys”instead of “in-line G keys”. Some players prefer “offset G keys”. If you need clarification just call me. These are all features of a good quality flute. It comes in a French style, hard shell case. Way professional! Come try it and see what you think.

The Gemeinhardt 3SHB intermediate flute offers the resonance and tone quality of a solid sterling silver headjoint combined with the French key mechanism (open hole keys). This is the flute you want if your student is moving up from a beginning instrument and into an intermediate instrument. I completely repadded this flute so it plays like a new horn. Part of the repadding process is the flute is completely disassembled and cleaned. All pads and corks are replaced and it is completely regulated and adjusted. Brand new this flute lists for $1500.00 and is commonly sold for around $1100.00. So, $850.00 for a newly repadded flute of this caliber is a great deal. Come try it out and see what you think.

This is a professional model flute that is considered Semi Handmade and I just finished completely repadding it. The headjoint, lip plate, body & footjoint are 92.5 % pure sterling silver which provides a rich, warm well-defined tone. The keys are made of nickel silver and then they are silver-plated. All of the key springs are made of white gold for a light touch and optimum response. Of course, it has a traditional open-hole configuration and key design, referencing the pointed arms on the key cups. The low B on the footjoint has a gizmo key which provides an easy and accurate fingering to facilitate high C. Consequently, this is one of the best flutes that I’ve had in my shop. You have to play this flute to truly appreciate it.
