STUNNNING YAMAHA A-421 GOLD/BRASS ALTO FLUTE – EX DEMO
The Yamaha’s YFL-A421 gold brass alto flute is one of the most sought-after alto flutes in the world. It is characterised by an agile response and precise intonation, but its best feature is its warm, beautiful sound. Yamaha’s unique expertise with the various alloys used in brass instruments led to the discovery that gold-brass (brass with a higher than usual copper content) is the perfect material for optimum tone, weight, and playability of an alto flute. The gold-brass gives a rich sound full of tonal colours and the flute is much more comfortable to hold and play than traditional alto flutes, being considerably lighter.
These sought-after flutes rarely come up for sale and this one is in showroom condition, only being used as a demo. It is in immaculate condition throughout and pads are practically new. Current retail price is approximately £5,500 and so this is a superb saving on a flute that is in top condition.
