Grenaditte is a recent discovery in terms of musical instruments: a form of plastic, it has the tonal qualities of Grenadilla-wood (the traditional wood used for making piccolos), and a large dynamic range, along with precise pitch. It is also impervious to temperature fluctuations, meaning it won't crack, and ensuring a consistent performance every time.
Omnipads are unique in that they have a three layer stucture; a plastic backing, a harder foam middle layer, and finally the playing surface foam. This results in a warmer (less bright) sound, which is ideal for a piccolo. The plastic backing also makes the installation much more accurate.
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.
