SANKYO ETUDE CLOSED HOLE FLUTE (CF-201) WITH STERLING SILVER HEAD (NRS-1), SILVER PLATED BODY AND SILVER PLATED KEYS, OFFSET G, E-KEY AND C-FOOT

 

Sankyo Etude closed hole flute for sale. Sankyo have been making flutes since 1968 and their flutes are acclaimed all over the world for beauty of tone and evenness of technique. Each instrument is hand-made from carefully selected materials and is constructed to a very high standard. Sankyo maintain that they have pursued the ‘perfect scale’ by building a precise mechanism and hand manufacturing every pad. The Etude (Also known as the CF-201)  is a superb upgrade for advanced students wanting a flute for their latter grades and beyond.  It benefits from a solid sterling silver headjoint and has a pure and focused sound, bright and easy through the registers and the offset G is useful for those with smaller hands or used to a student model.

 
This particular flute has had one owner and It has been regularly serviced and is in superb condition. The headjoint is the very popular NRS-1 cut, which is warm and expressive and free blowing. The pads are used and are well seated and so we have adjusted and cleaned the flute but left these in. It has closed holes with the offset G and Sankyo’s E mechanism, which is a reduced lower G key. This has the same effect as a split E and so helps with pitching.
