This flute offers the advanced student or serious amateur flautist a beautifully rich, yet solid tone with excellent mechanics. This hand-finished instrument would be ideal as a 2nd or 3rd flute, due to the improved tonal depth and interest provided by the 3K gold lip plate and solid .925 sterling silver head joint.
Pearl’s Dolce series flutes are built in the same moulds as the professional 795 Elegante instruments, and expertly demonstrate Pearl’s commitment to accuracy of pitch and flexible articulation.
The key work is made from a heavier gauge metal and is more finely sculpted than Pearl’s student and 665 Quantz series. Also, the Forza head joint produces unbelievable projection combined with a dazzling rich tone.
This flute comes with a B foot joint as standard. This extends the instruments range to low B which is invaluable for orchestral music and advanced solo pieces. Furthermore, the extra weight of this foot joint blackens the tone and increase resistance in the higher registers ever so slightly. This instrument also features a C# trill key to facilitate B to C# trills, and a D# roller which enables movement between the C, C# and D# keys on the foot joint.
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 an elegant French style wooden case, plush-lined case cover with shoulder strap, cleaning rod and several cleaning cloths.
