Inheriting the many merits of top-of-the-line Yamaha handmade flutes, these models offer rich, nuanced tonality over a wide dynamic range.
The 500 and 600 series combine the brilliance of nickel silver with the characteristic mellow timbres of sterling silver, while the 700 series delivers warmth and expressive color that only the finest silver flutes can provide.
All models come with hand-finished head-joints based on the Type A head-joints supplied with the 800 and 900 series handmade flutes. The keys feature traditional pointed key arms, reflecting the highest level of craftsmanship and adding visual elegance to these outstanding instruments. This specific model also includes a C# trill key.
Based on the Handmade Flute’s Type A design which offers a wider expressive range, the hand-finished head-joint on Yamaha professional flutes additionally offers easier response and excellent balance over the instrument’s entire range.
Straubinger Phoenix Pads (YFL-600/700)
Straubinger Phoenix Pads offer the same concept as the Straubinger Pads on Yamaha Handmade Flutes, and have a more suitable design for the 600/700 series. The pads allow the player to play with a softer touch while providing a more precise and consistent seal, superior response, wide dynamic range and longer life in regards to adjustment.
0.43mm Wall Thickness (600/700)
0.43mm wall thickness is now a standard feature on 600 and 700 series flutes. Combined with the new hand-finished head-joint and the Straubinger Phoenix Pads, the increased wall thickness provides excellent balance, and a warm, beautiful sound.
The head-joint, body and foot-joint of all professional flutes are heat treated through an annealing process that allows the instrument to vibrate more freely, providing optimal response and beautiful resonance.
The keys are hand-assembled and meticulously balanced for a perfect touch, and the key shapes have been so exquisitely designed and ergonomically placed that the flute will almost ‘disappear’ in your hands. Performances will feel effortless and natural.This 600 Series comes with a C# Trill Key
Pointed Key Arms
A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms, similar to those found on Handmade Flutes. Their beautiful designs are inspired by traditional European styling.
The compact case provides ease of transport and excellent protection from damage. All Yamaha professional flutes come with an elegantly designed case cover.
