    For the Warm Natural Sound of Fine Grenadilla WoodThey also deliver all the carrying power of a silver flute! Which means that Yamaha Handmade wooden flutes are suitable not just for solochamber music, but also for use in the modern symphony orchestra. Their remarkable tonal projection is the result of combining the state-art Type 4 scale with Yamahas uniqueType EW headjoint, and of their specially designed toneholeswhich are the same size as on metal

    AnType HW headjoint is optionally available for players who prefer this headjoint (see page 11).

    Lip plate The lip plate and headjoint body are sculpted out of asingle piece of fine African grenadilla for a pure, naturalresonance. The surface of the lip plate is extremelycomfortable and provides secure control.

    Silver TenonA silver tenon fits the headjoint into the body, just aswith a silver flute. This adds focus to the sound. It alsohelps to considerably reduce the weight of the flute.

    JointA similar silver tenon inside the footjoint connector reduces weight andprevents cracking. It also adds tonal body for improved projection. Anoptimal level of resonance provides a wide dynamic range with the volumand presence needed for performing in professional orchestras.
