Ex-rental Yamaha YFL-212 Student Flute
- Out of stock
A lip plate designed to guide beginners toward proper breath utilisation, keys with carefully considered dimensions and angles for optimum balance and easy playability. These and other details are some of the reasons why Yamaha student and intermediate flutes have become bestsellers worldwide. An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. New refinements include pointed key arms contributing to elegant visual appeal, and a completely revised key parts manufacturing process that significantly enhances overall precision.
Beginner Friendly Features
Drawn and curled toneholes give the flute a broad and light sound. Covered keys are easier for beginners to master and include pad cups that are covered to ensure a good seal on the tonehole. An offset G configuration makes the flute easier to play and is usually preferred by teachers for their students. A split E mechanism provides more stability and better centered intonation to the high E. A C footjoint provides a flexible, warm tone.
Featuring a double flare taper and a unique embouchure hole undercut design for excellent response and a warm rich tone, the CY headjoint helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound. More advanced players will appreciate its even, quick response in all registers.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. Manufacturing processes have been redesigned from the ground up to achieve substantially improved precision that not only leads to greater mechanical accuracy, but also minimizes the need for readjustment over time.
A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. This beautiful key design is inspired by traditional European style. Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosing of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed. Footjoint alignment marks facilitate proper fitting by young players.
