About Pearl Flutes
The most striking feature of a Pearl flute is its sound. Artists continually remark about the sound’s beauty and subtlety, which is further enhanced through Pearl’s equal dedication to rock solid intonation. In addition, the technological advancements on each flute allow flawless shifts from the most projecting of concert sounds to the most delicate subtle nuances.
All of this attention to the character of the Pearl sound and intonation would not be possible without their equal dedication to reliability. In 1982, Pearl’s innovative technicians created their patented One-Piece Core-Bar and Pinless Construction; perpetual smoothness of the key action became a reality. After all of this time, Pearl is still the only flute manufacturer to use these features on every one of their flutes - an industry hallmark! Headjoints, keywork and craftsmanship all comes together to create the unique artistry which is Pearl Flutes. The Quantz and Preferred Series models have captured an enviable reputation for Pearl as the most highly developed flute in the world.
The one Piece Core-Bar construction of all Pearl Flutes eliminates many of the wear and tear problems associated with traditionally constructed flutes, specifically in the areas of the high C key and the king post next to the F# key. Pearl has designed one rod that extends from high C through the king post resulting in an extremely reliable mechanism that plays more comfortably, stays in adjustment longer and is easier to service.
The foundation of every Pearl flute is a patented Pinless construction, which eliminates the problems of traditional flute construction - protruding needles that snag clothing and give easy entry to perspiration and body acids causing corrosion and binding keys. Besides this unique pinless construction, Pearl flutes have additional bridge mechanisms that add strength to the entire mechanism and socket-head screws that are inserted from the underside of the key work, preventing the entry of perspiration in to the mechanism.
