The PFA-201ES alto flute is a wonderfully resonant and responsive instrument. Like all Pearl flutes the unique aspect of this instrument is what Pearl describe as their 'pinless' mechanism. It is a feature which reduces the amount of acid and perspiration that can enter the key mechanism which virtually eliminates the corrosion that so often occurs over the medium term within the key structure. It also ensures that the flute remains responsive and efficient and is consequently a joy to play and own.
The construction of this instrument is of the one-piece core-bar style which helps mechanical reliability enormously but also reduces servicing costs.
This is a brilliantly comfortable flute to play with excellent projection. It is supplied in a sturdy hard case with the relevant cleaning materials.
