A great step-up model with a solid silver headjoint.
The Gemeinhardt 3SHB offers the resonance and tone quality of a solid silver headjoint combined with the French key mechanism (open-hole keys) often requested on an intermediate student instrument. The 3SHB offers specifications many teachers recommend for a step-up student flute.
With open tone holes, a silver headjoint and a B footjoint, the model 3SHB flute is one of the most desired step-up flutes offered today. The B footjoint provides a longer tube allowing a greater resonance in the flute, as well as providing advancing flutists opportunities to utilize alternate fingerings for greater facility in the upper register.
Other features include Gemeinhardt's unique embouchure hole design, proportioned tone holes and pad cups to ensure even response and extraordinary tone throughout all registers. In addition, a Gizmo key (high C facilitator) is standard on every B foot model flute. Gemeinhardt flutes also feature superior key mechanisms for fast action and outstanding playability.
Advanced students appreciate the mechanical and acoustical excellence of Gemeinhardt conservatory instruments. They offer a full, warm tone and are available with a variety of options. Designed to provide optimum performance within the serious student's price considerations, Gemeinhardt conservatory flutes offer extraordinary quality and outstanding value.
A 4th-generation flute-maker, Kurt Gemeinhardt dedicated himself to creating remarkably responsive instruments with a beautiful tone which would distinguish them from all others. Today Gemeinhardt continues his legacy by crafting flutes that achieve a delicate balance between superb artistry and sophisticated technology for flutists of all talents and abilities. Durably constructed of the finest materials, Gemeinhardt flutes feature integrally drawn and rolled tone holes, power-coined keys, and 4-post footjoint construction, which make these flutes exceptionally strong.
