The Quantz Series embodies ingenuity. Only this line of flutes covers as much diversity of flute making talent. Aspiring flautists have never been so fortunate.
"Every Quantz model has French Pointed Arms. Once considered solely the domain of handmade flutes, it is now universally provided by Pearl. French Pointed Arms afford unmatched quickness of speed. When this is matched with the patented Pinless Mechanism, the combinations are dramatic. After all this time, the Pearl Quantz Series is still the only flute to use these features on every one of their flutes – an industry hallmark!
"However, the most striking feature of Pearl Flutes is their sound, and artists continually remark about the beauty and subtlety of the Quantz Series. This is further enhanced by Pearl’s equal dedication to rock solid intonation.
We consider the Pearl 505EUS to be the best curved-headjoint flute available.
With features such as Pearl's pinless mechanism, pointed key-arms and an easy-to-play headjoint design, this flute plays well. Beginners can produce a strong, clear tone very easily; while more advanced players find there's still enough fullness and depth to the sound to be able to play more demanding music.
Using the same excellent body as the PF-505E, this flute is supplied with both a curved headjoint - to reduce the stretch for small players - and straight headjoint, for when they grow. The case cover has a side pouch for the curved headjoint.
Pearl's handmade craftsmanship has pioneered a tradition of flute making that is totally distinctive. Many flute makers claim to be innovators, but Pearl's track record can be proven. Most of the artisans have the distinction of building flutes for their entire career only at Pearl. The apprentice program has been employed for decades, which allows the talents of master builders to be passed on to future generations. The foundation of every Pearl flute is a patented Pinless construction, which eliminates the problems of traditional flute construction - protruding needles that snag clothing and give easy entry to perspiration and body acids causing corrosion and binding keys. Besides this unique pinless construction, Pearl flutes have additional bridge mechanisms that add strength to the entire mechanism. The goal of handmade creativity united with meticulous assembly is consequently realised. Pearl has a revered commitment to accuracy of pitch, flexible articulation, and a beautiful and projecting sound.
