Yamaha YFL212 Student Flute - Split E mechanism
Introducing the new Student YFL200 Series flutes.
Featuring the same high-grade design and craftsmanship as the 300 and 400 series models, 200 Series Flutes are made of durable nickel silver with an attractive silver-plate finish. They are characterized by excellent response and intonation.
The YFL features a Split E mechanism.
The split E mechanism is designed to make the high E more responsive. This mechanism physically splits the double G keys. When playing G, the keys behave as normal, closing both of the G keys.
When fingering high E, the mechanism closes the lower of the two G keys. This creates ideal venting for this note and therefore makes this usually troublesome note very stable. The high E speaks easier, and slurs from high A to E are much easier. The split E mechanism is only available with offset G keys.
