The Academy Flute (A=415) is based on an original flute made by C. Palanca and, like the original, it is responsive and sonorous. The Palanca flute is popular with professional players and this model makes its qualities available to students and beginners. It can be provided in Grenadilla and Mopane.
This version of the Academy Flute (A=415) has the beading and ferrules as on the original. The ferrules are made from Indian Water Buffalo Horn. This flute can also be made from Grenadilla and substitute ivory ferrules.
The key is made of brass.
All flutes come with a soft roll, cleaning stick and a bottle of Tung oil.
