Yamaha “YFL-581” Flute – SOLD
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.
