Flute Pearl 695RE Dolce - Open Hole
The Pearl 695RE Dolce flute offers the advancing student or serious amateur flautist a beautifully rich, yet solid tone with excellent mechanics.

Pearl’s Dolce series flutes are built in the same moulds as the professional 795 Elegante instruments, and expertly demonstrate Pearl’s commitment to accuracy of pitch and flexible articulation.
The key work is made from a heavier gauge metal and is more finely sculpted than Pearl’s student and 665 Quantz series. Also, the Forza head joint produces unbelievable projection combined with a dazzling rich tone.
This particular instrument has open holes (French or Ring keys) through the middle of keys A, G, F, E and D. This feature is particularly useful for extended techniques (such as quarter-tones and note slides), as well as encouraging an accurate hand position.
Like all Pearl flutes, their exclusive pinless mechanism is at the heart of the mechanics of this instrument. This design feature significantly reduces the levels of perspiration and body acid that can enter the mechanism, which almost eliminates the corrosion and binding of keys.
This instrument also comes with French pointed key-arms, which means that the key-arms run all the way into the centre of the keys, combining elegance with strength, stability and speed.
In addition, this flute has a one-piece core-bar construction, which results in an extremely reliable mechanism that plays more comfortably, stays in adjustment, and is far easier to service than traditionally constructed flutes!
This flute comes with an elegant French style wooden case, plush-lined case cover with shoulder strap, cleaning rod and several cleaning cloths.
