Experience Excellence with the YFL-697H Professional Flute In-line G

This new model inherits the outstanding qualities of Yamaha's top-of-the-line handmade flutes. It offers a wide range of tonal nuances and dynamics, along with exceptional craftsmanship, consistency, precision, and visual beauty. According to Brian Petterson, the marketing manager at Yamaha Winds, Yamaha Corporation of America, "Flutists seek instruments that meet their specific needs, and expanding our range of professional flutes offers a wider selection of features to cater to the discerning player's technique. These flutes are of the highest quality and produce a beautiful, expressive tone that will inspire flutists to excel."

  • Combination of Brilliance and Mellow Timbres: The YFL-697H model combines the brilliance of nickel silver with the mellow timbres of sterling silver.
  • Redesigned Mechanism: The instrument features a redesigned mechanism that includes a split E key, which is now available as an option on all Yamaha professional flutes.

  • Pinless Left-hand Key System: The flute utilizes the “pinless left-hand key system” for improved high F-F# key operation and easier maintenance.
  • Acoustic Annealing: The headjoint, body, and footjoint undergo an annealing process that allows the instrument to vibrate more freely, providing optimal response and resonance.
