With a headjoint, body and footjoint crafted from sterling silver, the YFL412 is designed for advancing students. Regularly seen on professional models, this provides a rich and warm tone with incredible projection. The unique CY headjoint by Yamaha has a double flare taper and a unique embouchure hole which helps beginners quickly learn to produce a beautiful sound. Designed for excellence, even advanced players are able to appreciate its even, quick response in all registers.
This model is designed to take you to the next level and beyond. The closed hole keys produce your notes with both clarity and projection. The split E mechanism and offset G key provide a more natural playing position.
All key shapes and placement have been ergonomically designed for a comfortable, natural-feeling performance. Manufacturing processes have been redesigned from the ground up to achieve substantially improved precision that not only leads to greater mechanical accuracy, but also minimizes the need for readjustment over time.
Finished by hand, the new pointed key arm addition gives the flutes an elegant, high class finish similar to that of Yamaha's professional and handmade flute range. They're inspired by a traditional European style for an excellent tone. Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosening of the screws. For easier access, the screw positioning has been changed.
