The Cantabile series is a product of Japanese flute craftsmanship, built by hand with the most precision and care. This flute is made from special .958 brittania silver, which makes it flexible in its use, produces a clear and rich sound and enables a big projection.
The tone holes of the Cantabile series are always drawn. In this process the tone hole material is formed by pulling up metal from the tube. It changes the inner wall of the instrument and especially playing legato becomes more effortless.
Continuing a tradition of innovation, French pointed arms are combined with Pearl's Pinless Mechanism and the One-Piece Core-Bar construction resulting in the highest possible precision.
The most essential acoustical element of every flute is the headjoint, enabling the flutist to control the tone. Therefore not only experience in crafting is needed, but an understanding of the art of flute playing is demanded. In cooperation with world leading flutists like Benoit Fromanger and Janos Balint, the craftsmen at Pearl have designed four exceptional handmade headjoints, making it possible to meet your expectations and find your flute.
The Cantabile is an excellent addition to the world of handmade flutes.
