PEARL PF-501 CLOSED-HOLE FLUTE WITH OFFSET G, SPLIT E AND C-FOOT
Up for sale is a beautiful Pearl PF-501 flute, perfect for students starting or upgrading. Pearl are well known for their craftsmanship and ingenuity. The foundation of every Pearl flute is a patented pinless construction, which eliminates the problems of traditional flute construction – protruding needles that snag clothing and give easy entry to perspiration and body acids causing corrosion and binding keys. Besides this unique pinless construction, Pearl flutes have additional bridge mechanisms that add strength to the entire mechanism.
The Pearl PF-501 student flute is the baseline model of the Pearl flute range, with all the features of a standard student flute including closed-hole keys, an offset G and split E mechanism.

This particular flute has been fully stripped down and serviced. The condition is generally very good with some scratches and light wear. There are no dents and the pads have plenty of life. The current retail price of this model is £600 so this is a superb opportunity. It comes with upgraded hardcase which is excellent protection. It is quite scratched but I suspect can be restored to better condition or easily replaced if wished. I have priced this very well, especially as it has been professionally serviced (£90 – £100 cost). This is perfect as a starter flute or for students upgrading off a cheap low quality model.
