Yamaha Bestsellers Refined to Support Beginning Players
Yamaha took everything they learned through the process of developing and perfecting our Handmade and Professional models and incorporated their essence into the design of their intermediate and standard flutes. But these flutes, meticulously hand-adjusted and test-played by experienced artisans, are more than just inexpensive versions of our professional flutes. They are closely focused creations in their own right. We developed them around the idea that beginners have special needs, that nothing is more frustrating than trying to learn to play on a poor quality instrument. It is very important for young students to be able to produce beautiful, flute-like tones as quickly and easily as possible. And it is equally important that their instruments have accurate, centered intonation to help their ears develop properly. These are flutes that will help beginners rapidly improve, while offering more advanced players excellent response and tonal qualities.
The headjoint is an important factor in determining the tone, and Yamaha's 300 Series flutes feature, at a very affordable price, headjoints of 92.5% pure sterling siver, and a nickel silver body and foot for a dark warm tone.
