That silver and gold sound
Silver has a characteristic, rich sound. With the .925 silver head joint on this Dolce Vigore flute, you get to create this classic silver tone from one of the most important parts of your instrument. The head joint is known as the voicebox of the flute, with the greatest responsibility for tone production. One of the main factors that affects its sound quality is its material. So, with this crucial element made from solid, high-quality silver, you'll have the tonal depth and strong sound projection that comes with this fine metal. Add to this the solid 3K gold lip plate and you've got something special. Elements like this add in a touch of the truly high-end, thanks to the incredible projection and vibrancy that gold provides.
The other main factor affecting tone is the cut. How your head joint is shaped lets the potential of the fine metal come through, and the Forza style of head joint matches the high quality of the .925 silver. Of Pearl's various head joints, the Forza is the more sophisticated cut, designed for advanced players. This is because it is known for its dynamic scope and true, rich tone. Experience superiority in material and cut.
The signature of a sophisticated flute is in the articulation. Play with clear, crisp articulations and you'll steal the show. The Pearl Dolce Vigore flute will get you there, thanks to the 695RE-VGR's craftsmanship in the same spirit as Pearl's exclusive Elegante model. This means you get the attention to detail of a professional instrument, giving you great accuracy of pitch and flexible articulation. Make use of this articulation potential by moving seamlessly between different styles, from legato to staccato for true musicality.
The all-important mechanics
Enjoy the smoothest playing experience. The Dolce Vigore has excellent mechanics, so you can feel confident as you play with a solid, reliably rich tone. You'll always feel sure that your notes are full and rich thanks to the offset G with a split E. This mechanism is known to make the difficult top E more responsive, giving you greater consistency on such an unreliable note. Smooth the way further with features preferred by professionals, such as the C# trill key to ease several awkward trill and tremolo fingerings. Likewise, the D# roller makes it easier to achieve a fluid transition between the D# key and the lower keys of the footjoint.
You have never played such a stable flute. Pearl lead the way with their impressive one-piece core-bar construction, which has improved a lot of the weaker areas flutes often have. Designing a rod that goes all the way from the high C to the king post removes a lot of the wear and tear issues that often develop in these spots. Thanks to these game-changing improvements, your flute will stay in adjustment well and be easier to service. Remove the stress from playing.
Pearl's exclusive pinless mechanism
Play on a revolutionary design you can only find with Pearl. Pearl's patented pinless mechanism raises their flutes to a new level. Pinless mechanisms strengthen the entire flute's performance, as the keys pivot easily through a series of bridges, for a more fluid sound. Beyond the smoother sound is also a more practical instrument thanks to the absence of pins, requiring less servicing. This is because, with holes for pins to fit into, perspiration and body acid can enter the flute and cause corrosion. But, with this pinless, one-piece construction, you get a very reliable mechanism. Another advantage is that protruding pins won't snag on your clothing. There's no downside to Pearl's pinless mechanism.
Be a part of unique flute craftsmanship. Pearl is a special company, pioneering their way into new and improved techniques which set the standard for the whole industry to rise to. You see this in their patented pinless mechanism, which created new possibilities for smoothness and reliability other flute-makers try to achieve. Pearl's results are so special because most of their artisans have built flutes only with Pearl for their whole career, which gives Pearl their distinctive style.
