Nickel Silver Plated Body, Headjoint, & Keys

This professional Armstrong flute features a nickel silver plated body, headjoint and keys. The silver coloured material brings prestige to the instrument as well as an amazing warm tone and enhanced projection. This implementation is only found on the highest calibre of professional flutes and enables the instrumentalist to achieve lyrical and expressive playing.

Quality Mechanisms

The FL650RI includes open hole keys suitable for a serious player who wants to advance their playing techniques and skills such as multiphonics, quarter tones and glissandos. Some of these techniques can be achieved with closed flutes but are more successful using this advantage. Natural cork bumpers, white felt bumpers, and pisoni pads are all types of materials used on this professional piece. These are great design features for those that are serious about professional mechanisms on their flute.


William Teasdale Armstrong is a highly respected craftsman who founded his first repair shop in 1931. Word soon got around of his skills and commitment to quality, soon after he was asked to manufacture whole instruments for professional musicians. That was when the legendary Armstrong was born.

Now Armstrong carries a worldwide reputation as a respected name of Woodwind instruments. Despite the business growing bigger than he could have ever imagined Armstrong has kept his authentic guiding principles. 'Listen, question, design, test, and continue to craft.'

Everything You Need

The FL650RI comes with a wooden case and cover to keep your instrument at its newest condition for longer, by keeping it free from damage during transport to and from rehearsals and concerts. To maintain your flute Armstrong have also included a cleaning rod and cleaning cloth. With everything you need included you can play straight out of the box.
