Yamaha's unique expertise with the various alloys used in brass instruments led to the discovery that Gold brass is the perfect material for use with harmony flutes to obtain the optimum tone, weight, and playability. The YFLB441 comes with Silver plated keys and a curved head joint.
Yamaha YFLB441 Bass Flute
The YFL-B441 bass flute is made from gold-brass like the YFL-A421 alto flute and features a similar quick response, rich beautiful tone, and accurate intonation. The bass flutes are often used in flute ensembles and studio recordings, and are increasingly used to play difficult alto solos in the orchestral literature. As with the alto, the gold-brass makes the flute much lighter and easier to hold, while still creating a rich and colorful sound.
