SKU: FLPEMD970 Brand: Pearl


The Maesta series is at the heart of the Pearl handmade flutes and has been the jewel in their crown for many years. Maesta originality is shown in the use of “Pristine” Silver (.970), which offers an astonishing projection of sound when compared with traditional .925 Sterling Silver.

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.
