BEAUTIFUL YAMAHA YFL-614 SOLID SILVER FLUTE WITH CLOSED-HOLES, OFFET G, SPLIT E AND C-FOOT

 

This is a superb opportunity to acquire one of Yamaha’s most sought-after models. The Yamaha Yfl-614 solid silver flute is from Yamaha’s professional range and has recently been discontinued. The head and body are solid silver throughout, the keys and mechanism are silver-plated with French pointed key arms and drawn tone-holes. A firm favourite with wind doublers due to the ease of embouchure and quite often mixed with a bespoke headjoint. This is a high quality professional model, made when the standard of Yamaha models was at its best.

The Yamaha Yfl-614 model was made with Yamaha’s new type-4 scale which has more accurately centered notes. The body is very well constructed and the mechanism light and accurate with white gold springs. It features closed-holes with offset G and split E, popular with students and those with smaller hands. This particular flute also benefits from the EC headjoint cut which features a slightly higher chimney wall (riser) and a more vertical cutaway to the lip plate. It therefore has an immediacy of sound which is crisp as well as firm and well rounded. It is easy to play and allows the player flexibility to add their own tonal colour to the sound. 
 
Condition of this flute is very good throughout with very minor marks. It has had one owner, is approximately 15yrs old and it has been fully serviced ready to go (Saving of £100). The pads are used but seal well and so we have left them in. It plays very nicely and cleanly and this is a lot of flute for the money. Due to prices of Yamaha models increasing with changing exchange rates, the 600 series particularly have increased steadily in price and are one of the most sought-after advanced models in the range.
