The Yamaha YFL-212 is perhaps one of the most reliable student flute models in the current market. The covered keys help beginner students ensure they cover the entire hole even if they don’t press the centre of the key. This model also features what is called a Split E; a feature that separates the G key from its twin key. This gives the high E a cleaner and more responsive sound. The offset G design of this flute also accommodates for smaller hands, as the G key is slightly off centre making it easier to reach when in playing position. The flute comes in a hard case with a zip bag, shoulder strap and polishing cloth. All Yamaha instruments come with a 3 year warranty for any unlikely manufacturer faults.
