The Yamaha YFL-212 Student Flute – more than Just Inexpensive Versions of our Professional Flutes

Featuring the same high-grade design and craftsmanship as the 300 and 400 series models, Yamaha YFL-212 Flutes are made of durable nickel silver with an attractive silver-plate finish. They are characterized by excellent response and intonation. Features include Covered keys, Offset G, E mechanism, Drawn & curled tone holes. The YFL212 is a new model, replacing the YFL211 which was the standard student instrument of choice for many years.

Key Types

Covered (or Plateau) keys are easy to use. The pad cup is covered so it will seal the tonehole any time the key is closed. This is common with beginners or others who may not always press the center of the key.

Many advanced players prefer the open feel of Ring keys for subtle control of their tone. Intermediate and Standard model French system flutes come with key plugs to seal the hole until players have become adept at covering the holes with their fingers.

Key Systems

Many players find the Offset G configuration easier to play. Often teachers recommend that beginners start on these flutes, while more and more advanced players are also choosing this natural feeling configuration. Many advanced students and professionals, though, still prefer the traditional In-line formation where all the toneholes are in a straight row.

Split E Mechanism

This key helps give more stability and better centered intonation to the high E.

Footjoints

The B footjoint has an extra key enabling the player to play 1/2 step lower than the lowest note of the C foot. It also affects the sound; B footjoint enables a darker, stronger sound with good projection, while C footjoint has flexible, warmer tone.
