This beautiful Pearl Flute is from the best-selling Quantz series: it features Pearl's iconic French pointed arms, pinless mechanism and a one-piece core-bar. This particular 765 model has a Sterling silver headjoint, body and footjoint, with silver clad keys. It is not open-hole, is offset, and it is an intermediate-level flute, perfect for those who are ready to take high-level exams, diplomas, and those wanting to begin solo or group concerts. When you blow your first note, you can immediately tell the sound quality is on an entirely different level from your average student flute. The low notes are rich and fruity, and the high notes are pure and clear. It takes very little effort to produce a stunning sound on this beauty. I have had this flute for around 3 years and was working towards my diploma; however, I unfortunately had to stop flute playing as I have no time to continue. It would be a delight to give this flute to an enthusiastic musician who wants to pursue their passion. It is still in perfect condition, as if it is new, but it doesn't come with a case or cleaning kit; you would have to buy those seperately. The original price was 1,724.80 pounds, but I would be willing to sell it at a generous discount of 1,200 pounds. If, for any reason, you find it is not the flute for you, I will provide you with a full refund and you can send it back.
