The in line G places both the G and the A key on a single rod next to each other. Many flutists prefer the hand position that the in line flute requires to play.
A growing number of flutists prefer the comfort and hand position of the offset G flute. Having a separate rod for the G means one less key on the A-Bb rod, and therefore easier maintenance.
Many flute masters of the past and present often prefer the C footjoint for its brighter tone. It is described as freeing up the low register and offering less resistance throughout the flute.
The low B footjoint not only extends the range one note lower, it adds weight to the overall instrument which increases resistance and results in producing an overall darker tone. The B footjoint improves the overall pitch of the third octave.
Allows the right hand E key to close the lower G key to make the high E easier to play. Available with offset G models.
(Gizmo Key) Standard on all B footjoint models. The high C facilitator makes it possible to close the low B tone hole while playing the high C.
Makes moving the little finger of the right hand between the low B, C, and C# to the D# key much smoother.
This key allows many trills and tremolos to be played in addition to trilling from B or C to C#, making it a truly versatile addition. Available with offset G models.
The classic pairing of flutist and the original precious metal has long been held as the soul of fluting. Connect with the flute’s great history and extend your personality into the future.
