Yamaha YFL874WH Handmade Wooden Flute with B Footjoint
This parituclar instrument is only 18-months old and is in immaculate condition.
Aesthetically stunning, the in-line handcrafted YFL-874W offers a beautifully warm, rich tone thanks in part to the grenadilla wooden body. But, thanks to the design and skill of our flute artisans, the YFL-874W easily delivers all the projecting power of our silver flutes - making this an instrument suitable not just for solo and chamber music, but also well-equipped for symphony and philharmonic orchestra performances.
- The lip plate and headjoint body are sculpted out of a single piece of fine African grenadilla for a pure, natural resonance
- The surface of the lip plate is extermely comfortable and provides secure control
- A silver tenon fits the headjoint into the body, just as with a precious metal flute. This adds focus to the sound. It also helps to considerably reduce the weight of the flute
- A similar silver tenon inside the footjoint connector reduces weight and prevents cracking. It also adds tonal body for improved projection
- The tone holes are precision-crafted of inset grenadilla which allows wider sized holes like those of metal flutes. This is another factor contributing to the flute's accurate intonation and tonal clarity.
NB* This instrument DOES have a B-foot joint but the picture shown above details a C-foot joint.
