As part of the new YFL-300 series intermediate range the YFL-312GL takes the place of the old YFL-311GL.
Well regarded as an excellent first upgrade model the 300 series has some new features that build on the classic models. This YFL-312GL features a precious silver headjoint and a gold plated lip plate for extra warmth and richness in the tone. It also has a closed hole keywork system which will make it comfortable for those upgrading from a student model.
Some of the new features include:
- Pointed Key Arms: Otherwise known as 'French' pointed key arms the new YFL-312 now features the same key mechanism design as some of the more expensive Yamaha models. The addition of the pointed key arm makes these keys more sturdy and even in how the pad underneath closes. This means the flute can play more easily and that pad wear is more evenly spread and reduced.
- New Pad Cup Shaping: After much research and testing Yamaha have applied new shaping to the pad cup touchpieces, ie where you rest your fingers on the keys. The new shaping feels more comfortable and natural under the fingers.
- New Optimised Pads: The quality of all the materials on these flutes is exceptional and now even the pads have been optimised to give longer life and a more even seal over the toneholes making the flute super efficient and easy to play.
