Yamaha YFL617 Flute

Headjoint TypeAm

Based on the Handmade Flute's Type A design, which offers a wider expressive range, the Type Am headjoint additionally offers easier response and excellent balance over the instrument's entire range, slightly heavier resistance, and wide dynamic range/control.

Straubinger Phoenix™ Pads (700/600 models)

Straubinger Phoenix™ Pads offer the same concept as Straubinger™ Pads on our Handmade Flute, and have more suitable design for 700/600 models. The pads offer softer touch, but also superior response, wide dynamic range and tolerance of environmental changes same as Straubinger™ Pads.

Heavy Wall Thickness (700/600 models)

The thickness of the wall has been increased from 0.38mm to 0.43mm to improve balance for use with the new Type Am headjoint and the 12 Straubinger Phoenix™ Pads.

Pointed Key Arms

A#, F# and other non-fingered keys feature pointed key arms. Found on handmade flutes, their beautiful designs are inspired by traditional European styling.

Key Design

The keys are hand-assembled and meticulously balanced for a perfect touch. And the key shapes have been so exquisitely designed and ergonomically placed that the flute will almost 'disappear' in your hands. Performances will feel effortlessly natural.
