The Yamaha YFL-212 Flute is widely regarded as one of the best student flutes on the market to date. Their reliability and longevity have consequently made them a favourite with flute teachers and pupils worldwide, helping generations of budding flutists well on their way to reaching their full potential.
RELIABLE BUILD QUALITY
The YFL-212 is one of the most durable student flutes, with extremely strong key-work and thickened key posts. Because the mechanism is tough, it can stand up much more successfully to the rigors of the day-to-day life of a student.
With reinforced key-work and such a strong mechanism, one might assume that the YFL-212 ID would feel bulky and sluggish but this is certainly not the case. This flute has a light, accurate response and quiet key-work to ensure that even fast passages can sound and feel effortless. In addition, the keys have been ergonomically designed and placed to allow for a perfectly comfortable playing position, and each flute has been hand-assembled to ensure that the balance of the keys is just right.
The head-joint and body is silver-plated, giving it a slightly darker sound than standard nickel-plating. With Yamaha’s unique head-joint this flute is free-blowing and responsive, allowing the student to produce a fine, clear tone. A similar design is also used on the higher Yamaha models and so allows the student to make a much easier transition if and when they decide to upgrade.
