Pearl products all guarantee a unique tradition of handmade flute manufacturing. The design and development of the flutes are constantly being tested to ensure the instrument can cope with the current market. A combination of handmade creativity and precise assembly provides a lifetime of musical pleasure. An apprenticeship programme allows master builders to educate future generations, keeping the standards as high as ever.
Traditionally constructed flutes often suffer with a lot of wear and tear issues. To prevent this from happening in today's demanding market, Pearl has created a one-piece core-bar. Pearl has designed a rod which can extend from the high C through to the king post, resulting in improved reliability and stability around weaker areas on the flute, also improving the comfort of action for all players. The keywork is built upon the patented pinless construction, to help eliminate many of the problems associated with traditional flute manufacturing. This works by reducing the areas affected by humidity and temperature change. The additional bridge mechanisms provide added strength to the entire construction and enables an easy and unique playing experience for all. To prevent entry of perspiration into the mechanism, Pearl has inserted socket-head screws from the underside of the keywork.
The Solid Silver Headjoint adds more value to the instrument and is a desirable feature for advancing players and avid musicians alike. The headjoint is capable of producing a richer and more mellow focused sound. Higher quality metals produce better quality headjoints, resulting in an improved overall flute sound.
The split E mechanism allows you to play the difficult top E - typically a weak sounding and unreliable note, with far greater ease and consistency. The flute also has an offset G key, which helps to provide a more comfortable hand position for players with a smaller hand span.
The flute also features French-style open hole keys, popular with players of every level. This key design requires more precision to play than Plateau-style closed keys, but offers greater freedom of expression and allows players to experiment with more advanced techniques such as quarter tones and glissandos. Open hole keys encourage players to correctly position their hands and lessens the chance of them adopting bad habits.
All Pearl flutes come with a case, case cover, polishing cloth and cleaning rod so you have everything you need to care for your new instrument. Open hole models also include a set of plugs.
