PEARL PF-501 CLOSED-HOLE FLUTE WITH OFFSET G, SPLIT E AND C-FOOT
Up for sale is a beautiful Pearl PF-501 student flute. 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.
Silver-plated nickel silver headjoint
Silver-plated nickel silver body, footjoint and key mechanism

This particular flute has light use and is in superb condition. The plating is excellent and the pads are used but only lightly so have years of play. I have stripped the flute down, polished and adjusted it and it is ready to go. The current retail price of this model is £600 so this is a superb opportunity. It comes with hardcase and a Pearl faux sheepskin-lined carrycase.
