Maesta Series Flutes
The Unique Pearl 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 nuancesPinless Construction
Pearl introduced pinless construction - the first significant refinement of the Boehm flute mechanism in more than 100 years - and soon thereafter, the one-piece core-bar. Traditional flute construction, using pinning needles, weakens the key shafts by requiring that holes be drilled in them to connect the parts of the key mechanism that work together. in addition, these protruding needles can snag clothing and give easy entry to perspiration and body acids that cause corrosion and binding keys. Pearl's unique pinless construction eliminates these problems with additional bridge mechanisms that add strength to the entire mechanism and with socket-head screws that are inserted from the underside of the key work, preventing the entry of perspiration into the mechanism.One Piece Core-Bar
Most flutists have experienced having the rod that secures the high C# key back out, causing excessive play at the Bb key. Additionally, the flute mechanism will tend to wear excessively at the king post, next to the F# key. The Pearl one-piece core-bar eliminates the possibility of this problem by designing one rod that extends from the high C# through the king post, forming a stainless steel bearing for the shaft of the keys for the right hand. The result is a more reliable mechanism that feels better and is easier to keep in adjustment and service.Tone Holes
Drawn Tone Holes are extruded from the body of the flute and produce a quick and resonant sound. Soldered Tone Holes are individually sculpted to the body, and are know for their great nuance of articulation.Craftsmanship
Headjoints, keywork and craftsmanship all comes together to create the unique artistry which is Pearl Flutes
