BEAUTIFUL YAMAHA YFL-614 SOLID SILVER CLOSED-HOLE FLUTE WITH C-FOOT
This is a superb opportunity to acquire one of Yamaha’s most sought-after models. The Yamaha YFL-614 solid silver closed-hole flute is from Yamaha’s professional range and has recently been discontinued. The head and body are solid silver throughout, the keys and mechanism are silver-plated with french pointed key arms and drawn tone-holes. A firm favourite with wind doublers and quite often mixed with a bespoke headjoint, this is a high quality professional model, made when the standard of Yamaha models was at its best.
The Yamaha YFL-614 solid silver closed-hole flute was made with Yamaha’s new type-4 scale which has more accurately centered notes. The body is very well constructed and the mechanism light and accurate with white gold springs. It features closed-holes with offset G and split E, popular with students and those with smaller hands. This particular flute also benefits from the EC headjoint cut which features a slightly higher chimney wall (riser) and a more vertical cutaway to the lip plate. It therefore has an immediacy of sound which is crisp as well as firm and well rounded. It is easy to play and allows the player flexibility to add their own tonal colour to the sound.
Condition of this flute is superb throughout, it has had one owner, the silver is in lovely condition, pads are excellent and it has been fully serviced ready to go. It plays very nicely and cleanly and this is a lot of flute for the money. Due to prices of Yamaha models increasing with changing exchange rates, the 600 series particularly have increased steadily in price and are one of the most sought-after advanced models in the range.
