Designed for Maximum Durability
The body of this student flute has been designed to be robust. Crafted out of nickel silver, the flute is able to produce a clear, rich tone effortlessly. Not only is the YFL212 a high quality, well built instrument, but its plastic hard case with outer case cover is also built to be durable and make sure your instrument is kept in top condition at all times whilst travelling. This model also incorporates thickened key posts for added strength and durability and easily accessible adjustment screws.
Silver Lip Plate
This YFL212 flute with silver lip plate differs from the normal 212 due to its lip plate and riser. The lip plate can influence the tone due to it being crafted from sterling silver rather than nickel silver. A sterling silver lip plate provides a more expressive and versatile sound.
With a double flare taper and unique embouchure hole undercut designed for excellent response and a warm rich tone, the CY headjoint helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound. More advanced players will appreciate its even, quick response in all registers. 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 minimises the need for readjustment over time.
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 loosening of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed. Footjoint alignment marks facilitate proper fitting by young players.
Everything You Need to Get Started!
Your new flute comes equipped with everything you'll need to start your musical journey. The hard case helps to keep your instrument protected during travel. As well as this, the YFL212 comes with a soft case cover and maintenance kit, to ensure that you can maintain the high quality of your flute for longer.
