The Maesta series is at the heart of the Pearl handmade flute range, and enjoys an enviable reputation of widespread professional approval by soloists, orchestral principals, conservatory professors and international prizewinners from around the world. The Maesta gold flutes have wonderful, rich overtones, with a wide dynamic range. They are available in the facile brilliance of 10K, the opulent rose gold elegance of 14K, and the unique warm sensuality of 18K gold. These gold preferences can also be employed for the keywork, embouchure riser and/or lip plate, rings and posts, or just the headjoint tube. They can be fashioned using traditional soldered tone holes or contemporary drawn tone holes.
Japanese Quality Control has insured that an investment in these instruments will provide a lifetime of musical satisfaction. With Pearl’s revered commitment to accuracy of pitch, flexible articulation, and a beautiful and projecting sound, it’s no surprise that Maesta gold flutes can be found in the hands of the world’s top professionals.
