Yamaha YFL371 open hole intermediate flute
The Yamaha YFL-371 flute is a fantastic intermediate flute, building on the sterling silver headjoint used on the YFL-311 and using open hole ring keys.
There are several advantages to open holed flutes like the Yamaha YFL-371; the holes are said to give a slightly clearer, louder sound, because the air vibrations are less muffled; some of the third octave notes have slightly better tuning; and on some notes, extra effects can be achieved by half-holing - covering only half the hole of a depressed key, in order to bend the note sharp. These effects are especially useful in some styles of jazz or in imitating various kinds of foreign music.
Made of durable nickel silver with an attractive silver-plate finish, the Yamaha YFL371 and has excellent response and intonation. This is enhanced by the Sterling Silver headjoint which helps to produce a richer tone. When playing at an intermediate level, it is not just a case of 'what' you play, but also 'how' you play it - with a higher quality instrument you won't be held back from playing at your best.
Yamaha's new CY headjoint allows for excellent response and control, while the quality is maintained by Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts that ensure the keys are free moving without working loose and redesigned key posts to maintain accurate rod allignment. Yamaha flutes really set the standard for quality flute making.
