America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
The wonder and fascination with Gold has been with us for centuries. Pearl offers a wide diversity of solid Gold choices. The Maesta Gold flutes have marvelous rich overtones, with a wide dynamic range.They are available in the facile brilliance of 10K, the opulent Rose Gold luster of 14K, and the unique warm sensuality of 18K Gold. These Gold preferences can also be used on the keys, embouchure Riser and/or Lip, rings and posts or just the Headjoint. Headjoint Cuts:
*Forte - This headjoint is a crowning achievement for Pearl. This headjoint is designed for large orchestras and concert halls. The Forte is very responsive, and produces a dark centered tone and enables a wide dynamic spectrum throughout the entire range of the instrument.*Vivo - This headjoint combines its own, graceful embouchure plate with modern undercutting techniques. It is easily controlled and produces an open and clear tone. The Vivo sound is silky smooth and ideal for chamber situations.
*Calore - The Calore headjoint is Pearl's most responsive and flexible headjoint ever created. Pearl craftsmen have designed a perfect blend of powerful tone, effortless articulation and exceptional dynamic range in one headjoint that is simply a joy to play.Typical of the big American Orchestral sound with a lot of flexibility, wide dynamic range and fast articulation.
*Vivace - This headjoint is a bit more free blowing and articulate than Forte cut.
