Hear What it Sounds Like.

A red flute will sound the same as a green one, or any other color, so I haven't recorded individual tracks for each one. The color of the keys doesn't make any difference to the tone. A silver-plated flute will have a richer tone than a colored flute. The recordings below let you hear how good these flutes can sound.

 

Split E Mechanism

This flute is fitted with the split E mechanism, which is a lever that automatically closes one of the G keys when High E is fingered. This lowers the pitch of high E, which tends to come out a little sharp, making it easier to play High E in tune. This feature is definitely worth having, although few students get up to high E for at least three years. It is difficult enough at the best of time to play the flute in tune, and any feature that makes this task easier is a big asset. The base model Yamaha flute, the YFL-221, doesn't have the split E. If you want a Yamaha flute with a split E, you have to upgrade your flute to the YFL-221, but it will cost you $150 extra. All Masterpiece flutes have the Split E mechanism fitted as standard.

Construction

The body of this flute is made from cupro-nickel - an alloy of copper and nickel, then painted red. The keys and lip-plate are coated with gold lacquer.

Open Tone Holes

This flute features five tone holes that have holes in them to allow better projection of your sound. The open tone holes also allow you to perform slides and glissandos with greater precision.

Because it can sometimes be tricky to make the transition from covered tone oles to open, the flute is supplied with five silicon plugs, which you can easily remove one at a time as you become more able to completely cover the open tone holes with your fingers.

 

B Footjoint

This flute features an extra key at the bottom of the flute, on the footjoint. This key allows you to play an extra note - Low B. Normally the lowest note on a flute is Low C. This flute is a few cm longer than flutes with a C footjoint, hence its ability to produce Low B. It's not every piece of music that requires Low B, but it can be gratifying to have the potential.

NO Packing Materials to Remove

Before manufacturers ship their flutes to suppliers, they usually insert packing wedges to support the keys in transit. These wedges need to be carefully removed with tweezers before playing. The wedges are not always easy to spot. If you don't remove every one, you risk bending the keys. Most suppliers of budget flutes don't bother to remove these wedges - they simply unpack your flute from a shipping container and send it to you. I remove all the wedges from every flute before I send it out.

NO Adjustments to Make

During transit from the factory, the last phase of seating of the pads occurs, as the pads become compressed into their proper position Tiny adjustments are often necessary when the flute reaches its destination. The adjustments are simple to perform, but if you don't know where to put your screwdriver your flute won't play at its best. Those suppliers who ship straight from the container and don't even bother to remove the packing wedges care even less about fine-tuning your flute before you get it. I play test all Masterpiece instruments and adjust them for you so that they are ready to play when they reach you.


Why buy musical instruments from me?

I know a good flute when I see one. Since 1980, I have been a professional musician, teacher and author. I have taught hundreds of students i n thousands of lessons. I have written more than 60 books on how to play musical instruments that have collectively sold more than one million copies worldwide.. Masterpiece instruments are the same instruments that I recommend to my students. I sit beside them and listen to them play all day long.
