PERFORMER SERIES 31PR2-ROEHSLA - PRODUCT CODE: 31PR2-ROEHSLA
The most advanced student flute on the market in a superior package with the additional benefit of a solid silver lip plate. Silver produces a warmer less shrill sound that is more powerful and projects better. A solid silver lip plate will already give you close to 25% of these benefits compared to a solid silver flute and this option gives you an excellent value for the dramaticlly improved sound. In conjunction with a B-foot this almost matches the sound quality of a silver head flute at considerably lower cost. The "shaped lip" is an innovation which used to be only available on heads made by some very specialized makers but this professional style lip plate is now available as an inexpensive option. The advantages come from a slightly higher chimney that makes the sound darker but also stronger without much loss of flexibility. Open holes are an option that is quite popular in some parts of the world without providing any real benefits to the player (link to "an open and shut case"). The off set g makes it a little easier for the left ring finger to cover the hole and it is a mechanical advantage because the keys are on a separate axle. This is why closed hole flutes usually have offset g keys. The "split E" or "E- Mechanism" makes the "E" in the third octave safer and speak more easily. Many players would not want to have a flute without it. The B-foot not only increases the range of the flute downwards and upwards by a semitone but also makes the high register less shrill and for a flute with a silver plated head joint this is a definitve advantage. With the help of the "Gyzmo key" the top c speaks much easier and also is better in tune. A wooden case with a padded cover give your flute the best protection. Together they can absorb more shocks and knocks and also provide excellent insulation from moisture, temperature and humidity changes. This is particularly important in tropical and subtropical climates as well as when traveling between different zones. This outfit also includes a wooden cleaning rod, a washable gauze cloth as well as an anti tarnish impregnated polishing cloth.
