Pre-Owned Sankyo 401-Kingma Flute

Our Description

The Sankyo-Kingma flute marks two milestones in the history of the flute: the first of which is the licensing of the Kingma Quarter-Tone system to a Japanese manufacturer; the second is producing Kingma System flutes at an affordable price.

The Kingma System flute has six extra keys which, in combination with the C# trill key and open holes, allow you to play a quarter-tone scale over the range of the instrument.

As well as this, the additional keys allow you to play a large number of unique multiphonics - in chromatic progressions - and even some triple-stops.  The final advantage is the ability to play special fingerings for difficult moments of intonation, across the flute's range.

General Condition

In excellent condition throughout. Fully serviced in our workshop prior to sale.

About Sankyo

Sankyo are highly-regarded Japanese flute makers, founded in 1968. They are always searching for technological innovations to attend the expectations and demand of flute players. Sankyo has pursued the perfect scale by building a precise mechanism through meticulous craftsmanship (even hand manufacturing each pad). Each process of the production is followed by a very precise quality control, which is done through computers, in order to avoid any kind of failure or defect that might occur. A great number of flute players have been seduced by the aesthetics and by the design of all their levels of flute, as well as by the perfection and security of the mechanisms.
