Body and footjoint are made in a particular mix produced by our laboratories composed by 70% ebony and 30% synthetic material.
The headjoint is made in 100% ebony
So the flute will be more stable and temperature/moisture resistant.
Silver plated keys (german silver)
Ideal for those who want to have an ebony flute but partly avoiding all the meticulous care that that wooden flute requires.

Result of a perfect blend of Italian craft tradition, high quality materials and advanced manufacturing technology.|
|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.|
