The new YFL-372 supersedes the popular Yamaha YFL-371 model and is absolutely ideal for the step-up player. The added split E mechanism makes top E easier to play, and the solid silver headjoint makes for a warm, rich sound. With the excellent build quality and easy sound production, this flute is reliable and well-made, and most importantly, friendly to play on.
A lip plate designed to guide beginners toward proper breath utilization, keys with carefully considered dimensions and angles for optimum balance and easy playability. These and other details are some of the reasons why Yamaha student and intermediate flutes have become bestsellers worldwide. An inimitable blend of leading technology and craftsmanship goes into each and every instrument. New refinements include pointed key arms contributing to elegant visual appeal, and a completely revised key parts manufacturing process that significantly enhances overall precision.
The 372H comes with a B-foot. A B-footjoint is longer and has an additional key, which adds one note, the low B, to the range of the flute. The extra length of the flute gives it darker tone and offers a higher resistance in the upper registers. Also, the flute has a little more weight than the YFL 372 with C-foot.
Advanced players often prefer open key holes, as these offer more subtle control and flexibility of tone.
Sterling Silver CY Headjoint
The headjoint of the Yamaha YFL-372-H is made entirely of sterling silver. This material with a 92.5% silver content has a greater density than the nickel-silver that is used for the 200 series. It therefore produces a warmer, more powerful sound. Due to the unique design of the embouchure, the flute provides excellent response and helps novice players to form a good sound quickly. Also the more experienced players will appreciate this headjoint, because of the quick response in both high and low registers.
The high E is one of the toughest notes to play on a flute. The E mechanism of the Yamaha YFL 372 H flute gives more stability and improves the intonation and response of the high E.
The G key is placed slightly to the left, resulting in a more natural placement of the fingers for most people. Often teachers recommend that beginners start on a flute with an offset G configuration because it tends to play easier.
