Open hole keys give this standard model flute a professional look and feel.
Yamaha Standard Flutes have become a favorite among teachers because of the open sound and easy playability. The headjoint, body and footjoint of the YFL-261 are made of durable nickel silver. Neoprene bumpers increase durability and achieve a maximum fit against the body. Recent improvements include a stronger post design to prevent bending of the posts, easily accessible adjustment screws, an improved adjustment screw material and body markings for proper positioning of the footjoint.
Undercut and beveled embouchure hole gives clean attack, sensitive response, and accurate intonation. Double bladder pads provide longer life and maximum seating. Neoprene key bumpers are stronger and more durable than cork. Nickel-silver, power-forged keys are very durable and less susceptible to breakage. Stronger key posts are thickened and redesigned for improved durability and strength to maintain accurate rod alignment. A unique footjoint alignment mark facilitates proper fitting by young players. All key shapes and placements have been ergonomically designed for comfortable, natural-feeling performance. The keys are hand-assembled and adjusted for a perfect 'touch' and balance. Yamaha's unique screw resistance inserts allow smooth adjustments while preventing gradual loosening of the screws.
