- Stock: In Stock
- Model: 7714
DR TOOT Brass & Woodwind Specialist are proud to present a brand new Briccialdi flute “Semi-Professional Model 7714” from Italy directly.
Materials: Headjoint, Body, footjoint - Sterling 925 silver | Keys - German Silver plated
Drawn and Rolled Tone Holes: Constructed from the flute tube itself. The flute has slightly less metal and weight than a flute with soldered tone holes.
Titanium Stopper Plug: It leaves the headjoint to vibrate more freely thanks to the very small contact surface. It consists of one piece to fit in the same way you mount the standard cork stopper. It is made of TITANIUM, oxidation resistant almost as platinum, extraordinary hardness/weight ratio. It weights about 40% less than steel but with similar resistance. This system will make your flute easier to play at lower notes, and especially the second and third octave sound become warmer and ready.
Footjoint: B foot
Headjoint: Step-1 Headjoint (Sterling 925 silver)
E-Mechanism: A split E mechanism allows venting only one G key while fingering high E. This facilitates production of the high E and it provides a more stable response. (At request you can order flute without E-mechanism)
Pads: Italian Pisoni Deluxe J Yellow pads – double yellow bladder, pressed felt special treatment.
Pad Resonators: Similar to these found on Muramatsu, Sankyo, Miyazawa and other professional flutes.
Open Holes with Plugs: Central openings are covered by the fingertips when depressed. Students may use temporary plugs to cover the holes in the keys until they master the more precise finger placement needed to play open-hole keys. Some players state that open-hole keys permit louder and clearer sound projection in the flute's lower register. Open holes can be used for effects such as bending and shading, and the player can crack some holes to bring pitch back up when playing softly on high register notes. Playing open holes requires and therefore develops fingering accuracy that is not essential on plateau keys. Some clever trills that make use of the open hole venting for better pitch. Open hole flutes can be used as closed hole by inserting plugs in the holes.
Offset G: The G keys are offset slightly from the rest of the keys, mounted on their own posts, separate from the other keys. A growing number of flutists prefer the comfort and hand position on the offset G flute. (At request you can order flute with IN LINE G)
French Pointed Arms: A key design that connects keys to the rod with a raised, pointed arm which extends to the center of the key. Also referred to as "Styled keys". It gives more strength to the keys.
