Pearl’s Quantz series flutes embody ingenuity, and pay homage to Johann Joachim Quantz, the legendary Baroque composer and flautist. Artists continually remark on the beauty and subtlety of this series, as well as the immediately responsive, yet round and mellow sound offered.
This particular instrument has open holes (French or Ring keys) through the middle of keys A, G, F, E and D. This feature is particularly useful for extended techniques (such as quarter-tones and note slides), as well as encouraging an accurate hand position.
Like all Pearl flutes, their exclusive pinless mechanism is at the heart of the mechanics of this instrument. This design feature significantly reduces the levels of perspiration and body acid that can enter the mechanism, which almost eliminates the corrosion and binding of keys.
This instrument also comes with French pointed key-arms, which means that the key-arms run all the way into the centre of the keys, combining elegance with strength, stability and speed.
In addition, this flute has a one-piece core-bar construction, which results in an extremely reliable mechanism that plays more comfortably, stays in adjustment, and is far easier to service than traditionally constructed flutes!
This flute comes with a protective French style case, plush-lined case cover with shoulder strap, cleaning rod and several cleaning cloths.
