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 YFL272 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.
This YFL272 flute with silver lip plate differs from the normal 272 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.
