The intermediate SFL511BO features a professional hand-cut headjoint made of the finest grade American sterling silver, hand-assembled keywork, Pisoni Lucien Deluxe pads, and a body comprised of premium Japanese nickel silver. The headjoint design features a sharp blowing edge, steep drop-off lip plate, and multi-tapered bore for fast and effortless response and articulation. The under and over hand-cutting provides a rich, expressive tone that is even throughout all the registers and gives the performer extreme dynamic control.
The keywork has the highest specifications and tolerances alongside carefully adjusted and balanced German steel wire springs ensuring a feather-light, lightning-fast, and fluid key action. French pointed key arms connect at the back of the key cup and extend to the center guaranteeing greater strength, stability, even pad wear, and ultimately less overall maintenance. Every Selmer flute is professionally set up, play-tested, and optimally adjusted at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Factory located in Elkhart, Indiana.
At Conn-Selmer, we are committed to ensuring every woodwind instrument is ready to play right out of the box. To obtain this objective, we have developed and implemented a stringent "double set up process" for all woodwinds. This process means the instrument is play-tested and adjusted, allowed to rest, and then meticulously re-examined and re-adjusted by our expert quality assurance team. Rest assured, every woodwind instrument is now professionally set up at the Conn-Selmer Woodwind Center in Elkhart, IN, in optimal playing condition the moment you open the case, and ready to last a lifetime.
