Yamaha YFL-517 Flute (500 Series Professional model)
Inheriting the many merits of top-of-the-line Yamaha handmade flutes, these models offer rich, nuanced tonality over a wide dynamic range.
The 500 and 600 series combine the brightness of nickel silver with the characteristic mellow timbres of sterling silver, while the 700 series delivers warmth and expressive color that only the finest silver flutes can provide.
All models come with Type Am headjoints based on the Type A headjoints supplied with handmade flutes 900 and 800 series. The keys feature traditional pointed key arms, reflecting the highest level of craftsmanship and adding visual elegance to these outstanding instruments.
Type Am Headjoint
Based on the Handmade Flute’s Type A design, which offers a wider expressive range, the Type Am headjoint additionally offers easier response and excellent balance over the instrument’s entire range, slightly heavier resistance, and a wide dynamic range.
A special annealing process delivers more pure transmission of vibration from the player to the flute for rich resonance and superior response.
The keys are hand-assembled and meticulously balanced for a perfect touch. And the key shapes have been so exquisitely designed and ergonomically placed that the flute will almost ‘disappear’ in your hands. Performances will feel effortlessly natural.
Pointed Key Arms
A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. Found on Handmade Flute, their beautiful designs are inspired by traditional European styling.
The case is compact for easy travel and durable to protect the flute, and is accompanied by a sophisticated case cover
