Yamaha craftsmen sought to create a handmade flute that allows the artist to freely express their musical ability and to enable the artist to encounter endless new musical ideas. A flute that moves the artist to explore colorful depictions of sound, from delicate shades to rich hues and powerful tunes. To empower the artist to perform with unhindered musicality, even when accompanied by a full orchestra, liberating musicians to expand their imagination. All possible because of the skill of master craftsmen and a design that offers unlimited musical options. Expand the scope of musical expression, inspired like never before to surpass the limits of conventional flutes. Musicians who love the flute should experience all that is possible.

Headjoint - The new Yamaha “Type A” headjoint enables the flutist to produce an easy yet colorful sound and still play using a wide dynamic range. The newly redesigned lip plate promotes efficient playing technique and provides optimal resistance when paired with the new Handmade flute body. The “Type A” headjoint has been praised by many players for its clear sound, which is distinctive even at pianissimo. The wall thickness is slightly increased from other headjoint models to improve the resonance of the headjoint and provide exceptional response when playing fortissimo, maximizing the tonal colors available for the performer.

Toneholes - The overall weight of the flute was slightly enhanced by increasing the thickness of the toneholes. Combined with the undercut design of the toneholes, the performer is enabled to play with a colorful sounds, optimal resonance, a wide dynamic range, and a high quality sound that is ideal for flutists in professional orchestras.

Flat Pad Cups - Flattened pad cups provide better stability than more traditional-style pad cups. Pad positions can be adjusted more easily and stabilized for a longer length of time when the pad is seated in a flat pad up. Because the pad is more stable, it is also able to respond more freely, creating a rich and desirable resonance.

Straubinger Pads - Straubinger pads, which are made using a stable plastic base and durable synthetic leather, have been widely adopted as essential components of a high quality handmade flute. Compared to traditional felt and paper pads that require frequent adjustments, Straubinger pads are more tolerant of environmental change and remain in top playing condition for a longer period of time. A Yamaha Handmade flute with Straubinger pads enables the player to achieve a clear response with a more mature, nuanced sound.

Pinless left-hand key system - The high F-F# key movement is improved and much smoother due to a newly developed and innovative pinless left-hand key system.

Acoustic Annealing - A special acoustic annealing process that allows for a more pure transmission of vibration from the player to the flute provides Yamaha Handmade flutes with a deep, mature sound and clear response.
