HANDMADE PEARL PF-8800 CANTABILE SOLID SILVER FLUTE WITH CLOSED-HOLES, OFFSET G, SPLIT E AND C-FOOT
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-8800 Cantabile solid silver flute is the first in Pearl’s range of handmade flutes. It is made completely from Sterling silver and has drawn tone holes and French pointed key arms.
This particular flute is in pristine unmarked condition throughout. It has closed-holes with offset G and split E. The offset G keys are advantageous for those players with slightly smaller hands, the split E helps pitching on the top E and the B-foot adds an extra tone to the register and weight to the sound. It has the VIVO cut headjoint which gives a silky smooth tone and is easily controlled with an open and clear sound.
This flute is a perfect upgrade for any student working through grade 5 and above and will comfortably take them through their advanced grades and onwards to college. The current price of this model is £4,150 and so this is a superb upgrade for an aspiring player.
