As part of the new YFL-400 series intermediate range the YFL-472UK takes the place of the old YFL-471UK.
Well regarded as an excellent value solid silver flute model, the YFL-472UK has an open hole keywork system and a precious silver head, tube and footjoint. This would make it an ideal upgrade instrument for any player advancing through the grades, the full silver construction adds a solidity and projection to the tone.
Some of the new features include:
- Pointed Key Arms: Otherwise known as 'French' pointed key arms the new YFL-472 now features the same key mechanism design as some of the professional 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.
