Special Features

  • Multi-Coat Plating refers to a special plating process that we use to enhance the tone quality of our instruments.   The tone will be fuller and richer at all dynamic levels.
  • Offset G Key is important for young players because it allows for a small hand to reach the G key with greater ease.   As they become more comfortable with their finger placement, the player may want to move onto an In-line G key design type flute.  This feature is typically found on more advanced or professional instruments.
  • Split E Mechanism is intended to improve the pitch and control of the high E.   This note is problematic for most flutists and is corrected by having a split E key mechanism.  Available on our offset G type design flutes.  The split E mechanism closes off the upper G keys, which in turn forces the air to flow through the lower tone hole. This process of redirecting the airflow will improve the centering of the pitch and the overall control of the note.

Ease of response and great projection are the characteristics of our piccolos.  The tone is full, rich and even throughout the entire playing range.  Great projection without harshness is also characteristic of these fine instruments. Piccolo

Special Features

Piccolo with plastic bodies are very durable and offer a quality of sound that is similar to wood instruments.

  • Conical bore refers to a graduated taper to the bore or inside diameter of tubing.

C l a r i n e t s

Our clarinets are very popular with students because of their easy response, smooth key action and beautiful tone.  The scale is even and our instruments respond well at all dynamic levels.  Quality and durability are also key features for our line.

Special Features

  • Plastic body instruments are intended to be more cost effective and require less maintenance.
  • Grenadilla Wood instruments will have a warmer, richer tone that is more resonant.   Wood requires more care and maintenance than plastic instruments and are more susceptible to cracking due to temperature and humidity changes. Thorough cleaning and periodic bore oil treatments will help to prevent the wood from cracking.
  • Under cut tone holes will greatly improve the response and fluidity of the scale of the instrument.   This feature is usually found on instruments that cost considerably more than ours.   This is a standard feature on all of our clarinets.
