The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Why Yamaha?

Yamaha is a brand trusted by millions of musicians worldwide. Their attention to detail and precision is a trait which has earnt the respect of beginning students and world renowned musicians alike. An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. New refinements include pointed key arms contributing to elegant visual appeal, and a completely revised key parts manufacturing process that significantly enhances overall precision.

200 Series

Yamaha’s 200 Series flutes offer student musicians a practical, inspiring instrument to learn with. Designed around the student, this series features a number of construction techniques to assist in achieving notes pronounced with clarity. The nickel silver alloy is a classic body for student players due to its rugged build quality and balanced tonal production. All models, apart from the 282, feature an offset G key, which is ideal for musicians taking lessons and wanting to work on their hand positioning. The 200 series is ideal for players wanting to inspire themselves into progressing with the flute.

Beginner Friendly Features

Drawn and curled toneholes give the flute a broad and light sound. Covered keys are easier for beginners to master and include pad cups that are covered to ensure a good seal on the tonehole. An offset G configuration makes the flute easier to play and is usually preferred by teachers for their students. A split E mechanism provides more stability and better centered intonation to the high E. A C footjoint provides a flexible, warm tone.

Ergonomic Keys

All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. Manufacturing processes have been redesigned from the ground up to achieve substantially improved precision that not only leads to greater mechanical accuracy, but also minimizes the need for readjustment over time.

Final Touches

A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. This beautiful key design is inspired by traditional European style. Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosing of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed. Footjoint alignment marks facilitate proper fitting by young players.
