Crafted to Perfection
Setting new standards for musicality, craftsmanship and expression, this flute benefits from the technical knowledge of some of the most gifted artisans in the world. There have been a number of significant improvements made to this new and improved instrument. The new Type AM headjoint is crafted out of silver and features a well balanced resistance over the entire range, allowing you to produce a colourful sound in a wider dynamic spectrum.
For a quicker, more lively response, Yamaha have added a special heat treating process called sound annealing. When coupled together, the whole range is given new possibilities for expression with both an easier response and excellent balance. The YFL677 model also employs an increased wall thickness, allowing slightly more resistance and more musical flexibility.
The silver plated keys adapt both Straubinger Phoenix pads and stainless springs. These upgraded pads allow for more precise padding and stable adjustment. Designed with a harder surface, they provide both a quicker response and a clear sound timbre. The ergonomic design of these enhanced pads give you the impression that the flute was custom designed for you.
This flute benefits from ring keys, which are suited for concert-level players. They produce a louder and clearer sound projection in the flute's lower range. Suited for professionals, open-hole keys are needed in order to play harmonic overtones, or to manipulate "breathy" sounds in addition to the traditional "pure" tone.
The 600 series is a step up for the professional musician's playability and sound. The silver body, footjoint and head have a naturally warm sound with developed overtones, as well as a stunning appearance. The headjoint has a Type AM shape which produces slightly more resistance for increased dynamic range. The pointed key arm design not only look stunning, but offers a preferable feel too. For professional musicians who require a shaped tone with the ability to reach stunning sound, the 600 series flutes are an ideal choice.
Yamaha are universally acknowledged as a leader in the musical world. They are known for their attention to detail and precision, which has earned the respect of students as well as professional musicians from around the world. Yamaha's combination of craftsmanship and leading technology are transferred into the production of every instrument.
