Pearl Flute 665RE 50th Anniversary Model – Zircote Lipplate
This Quantz Pearl Flute 665RE has a sterling silver headjoint, and Pearl Flutes continues a 50-year history of Innovation by introducing the Zircote wooden Lip Plate Headjoint on this commemorative model.
Zircote wood used on the lip plate has a very earthy and luxurious tonal response that stands apart from all other Pearl Flute headjoint options and is especially appealing for use in world, period, and jazz genres.
Pearl Pinless-Mechanism and One-Piece Core Bar construction with Special 50th Anniversary engraving complete the model features of this unique instrument.
The flutes in the 665-series are made from nickel silver, all of them are silver plated, giving the flute its shine and at the same time protecting the material from corrosion. Quantz flutes are provided with French pointed arms as well, both increasing the stability and enhancing the quality of the mechanism, a unique feature amongst student flutes.
Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation
Pearl Flutes began 50 years ago as a small group of talented craftsmen with the desire to create instruments of the highest quality and performance. Our spirit of innovation is the guiding philosophy for our company and while five decades have passed, each generation of craftsman has handed down the techniques and expectations for perfection.
We have constantly engaged in the research of flute acoustics, materials, and design to produce the finest instruments available. This standard of seeking the highest level of performance led to the design in 1972 of the Pearl Pinless Mechanism and the truly unique One-Piece Core Bar. The resulting feel, touch, and speed from the Pearl Pinless Mechanism enhances the technical and musical potential for artists of any level.
We’re not just building a flute, we are building an instrument that is an expression and extension of your soul. For 50 years, our passion for sound quality has lead the company to innovate many features that have become the standard to which all others are compared. We look forward to the next 50 years!
