Key of C. Silver-plated head, body, and keys
The design of the FL710E has been thought through in order to help the beginner and advancing musician get the best possible results from their instrument. The Offset G displaces the G key allowing more a more ergonomic feel to the instrument, particularly with smaller hands. The split E mechanism allows for a more in tune high E, which in general suffers on flute without this helpful alteration.
This instrument has been crafted out of a nickel alloy and has then been silver plated from top to bottom. This allows for a great looking instrument but also one that doesn't suffer from tarnishing as quickly as many other equivalent plating.
This flute has been crafted for the beginner instrumentalist. The ribbed construction of the FL710E creates a specific airflow that gives a greater stability throughout the range of the instrument. As well as this, the instrument has closed tone holes as opposed to open ones. This aids the performer to create a better intonation.
Silver plated finish on body and keys provides durability. Silver plated headjoint provides terrific response and ease of playing. The offset G key follows the natural contour of student's hands and makes playing more comfortable. The FL600 combines top quality and attention to craftsmanship with value and afoordability.
