Flute Options

Options available for an additional charge.
 
C# TRILL

Please visit the C# Trill Page for a thorough description.

 

SPLIT E MECHANISM

An additional mechanism that provides a more secure high E natural and improves its articulation. It does not alter the pitch of any notes. See image above.

 

LOWER G INSERT

A much less expensive alternative to the Split E mechanism, this insert also provides a more secure high E natural. Some players notice a slight flattening of the A natural in the first and second octaves. See image above.

 

D# ROLLER

This roller facilitates movement between the D#, C#, and C keys on the footjoint. See image above.

 

TONEHOLES

Why is a soldered tonehole flute considerably more expensive than one with drawn toneholes? To make a soldered tonehole flute, we must first make and stock six different sizes of toneholes. Then, a minimum of 16 toneholes must each be hand-fitted to the flute tube, a considerably time-consuming, and therefore expensive, process. On the other hand, drawn toneholes are all pulled up directly from the flute tube; they require no separate inventory of parts and no hand fitting. This translates into lower production costs.
