ยามาฮ่าฟลูต YAMAHA YFL-372 Step-Up Flutes
An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every Yamaha flute. The YFL-300 models feature Sterling Silver headjoints which help create a warm, focused tone. As with our student models, they also feature a lip plate designed to guide students toward proper breath utilisation and keys designed for optimum balance and easy playability. These and other details are some of the reasons why our student and standard flutes have become bestsellers worldwide.
The YFL-372 features ring keys, an offset G key and includes a Split-E mechanism. It’s available with either a B or C footjoint, and with either a silver lip plate or gold-plated lip plate.
A lip plate designed to guide beginners toward proper breath utilization, keys with carefully considered dimensions and angles for optimum balance and easy playability. These and other details are some of the reasons why Yamaha student and intermediate flutes have become bestsellers worldwide. An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. New refinements include pointed key arms contributing to elegant visual appeal, and a completely revised key parts manufacturing process that significantly enhances overall precision.
The 400, 300, and 200 series models offer various combinations of sterling silver and nickel silver. An extensive lineup makes it easy to choose an ideal first instrument for every player.
Key posts have been thickened and redesigned for improved durability and strength to maintain accurate rod alignment.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. The keys are hand-assembled and adjusted for perfect balance and ‘touch.’
Pointed Key Arms
A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. This beautiful key design is inspired by traditional European style.
Yamaha’s unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosing of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed.
Footjoint alignment marks facilitate proper fitting by young players.
Curved Headjoint (FHJ-200U)
An optional curved headjoint makes flutes easier for young children to hold and play. It comes with a convenient carrying case which holds both headjoint and flute case.
High Durability Artificial Materials *only for YFL-222HD
The YFL-222HD has been designed to maintain the playability, pitch accuracy, and beautiful tone of Yamaha standard flutes for longer periods with less maintenance. The pads, head joint cork, and felt pads are made of high-durability artificial materials that reduce the frequency and cost of maintenance. The YFL-222HD is an instrument that beginners can choose with confidence.
Valentino® Goldfinch Pads™
These pads are extremely durable and resistant to changes in humidity. Compared to general flute pads they are less prone to deformation, and therefore maintain a better seal for longer periods of time.
Valentino® Strata Cork™
The cork fitted into the flute’s head joint is made of a new artificial material, and a unique 5-part structure maximizes resistance to changes in humidity. This prevents the reflective plate in the head joint from shifting out of position, thereby maintaining pitch accuracy for longer than a standard cork.
Most standard flutes use small felt pads to reduce noise and wear at points where metal key mechanism parts come into contact. Over time the thickness and shape of the pads can change, reducing the smoothness and playability of the key mechanism. The YFL-222HD uses a high-durability artificial material in place of felt, ensuring long-term key mechanism stability.
Material Combination for Intermediate & Student Flutes
Drawn and Curled
Walls are drawn upward from the body material, giving the flute a broad, light sound.
Ring (French) Keys
Split E Mechanism
This key helps give more stability and better centered intonation to the high E.
